Whether they use a personal or company automobile, many employees are required to drive as part of their quotidian tasks. As such, they are frequently exposed to the risk of car accidents, which can result in damaged property, as well as personal injury and even death.
This course in Defensive Driving aims to significantly lower this risk by teaching students how to change their driver behavior, recognize potential hazards before they occur, and effectively respond to an impending collision. The strategies that workers learn during this training program are useful in both their professional and personal lives.
All people who drive an automobile can benefit from training in Defensive Driving. The course is geared towards employees who frequently drive as part of their professional duties, but can also be purchased in bulk by businesses looking to comply with the latest safety regulations and considerably reduce lost time due to car-related injuries.
Although almost all employees drive a vehicle, some industries are more likely than others to require training in Defensive Driving. These include:
- Oil & Gas,
- Logistics (Shipping & Warehousing),
- Waste Management,
- Hospitality & Tourism,
In Canada, businesses are required by law to ensure a safe work environment for all employees. As such, employers who often task workers to drive a vehicle must implement rigorous training in defensive driving.
The employee, on the other hand, must assume responsibility for the completion of the training program and the application of learned driving strategies in the workplace. Since driving is a commonplace requirement across numerous industries, many people looking to obtain a new job choose to independently acquire and complete this safety course to improve their CVs.
To obtain a certificate in Defensive Driving, you must demonstrate a broad understanding of environmental and personal hazards for drivers. You must also become familiar with the three-part collision prevention formula and be able to describe several driving strategies you will implement to reduce the risk of accidents while on the road.
Employees who drive on a daily basis should re-take this training program each year. Car accidents can prove fatal even when one or several of the injured parties drive flawlessly. That is why, as a driver, you must keep yourself up to date with the latest safety regulations and collision prevention strategies.
Defensive Driving is often paired with courses such as TDG, First Aid Awareness, Lone Worker, and/or WHMIS 2015.
