Subsequently the training was rolled out to staff and service patrol drivers across the organisation under the Safer Driver banner. The initiative was spearheaded by NRMA CEO Tony Stuart who recognised the importance of workplace driver training as an OH&S requirement.
These programs were complimented by further initiatives under NRMA BusinessWise corporate services to fleet customers. Murcotts was also invited to become a provider under the Show Your Card and Save program through to 2008.
