Corporate Driver Training - A Key Factor In Reducing Crash Rates And Fleet Insurance Premiums.
Corporate Driver Training is one element of a systems solution in reducing high crash and claims rates.
Murcotts has for many years recognised the importance of multiple solutions that deliver safe driver management systems.
Proof of our approach are the many large corporate and government employers who have engaged Murcotts to not only help with driver training programs but also to develop and apply a range of risk management systems that directly deliver a driver safety culture.
Employers such as - Wesfarmers, Lend Lease, Sydney Water, COMCAR, Bunnings, Commonwealth Bank, Coles, Bureau of Meteorology, All State Government Departments, Melbourne Water, News Corp, Sydney Trains, AAMI Insurance all achieve great results and benefits by having their drivers attend Murcotts Defensive Driving Programs across Australia.
We work with your Risk, OH&S and Human Resources Managers to develop the systems that directly reduce vehicle crashes and incidents within your fleet. We can demonstrate how you can increase productivity through risk reduction strategies and training programs that deliver measurable outcomes and more importantly, improve employee satisfaction. Our guidance extends to your employees' families. Our clients manage fleets in the thousands.
Here are the six main reasons you should consider Murcotts for all your corporate driver training needs.
1. Our Programs are structured and target the following learning outcomes:
2. Training Methodology
Murcotts' programs are based on experiential learning approaches that deliver both cognitive and competency outcomes.
Our practical programs are designed to promote learning through discovery. It's what the participant chooses to do following the training that will reduce risks. Discovering gaps in their ability to drive safely motivates participants to rethink their driving.
Moralistic lecturing about road safety and presenting gory road trauma graphics are not effective according to research in human behaviour change.
3. Qualified Trainers
Murcotts employ our own permanent, qualified and experienced trainers and educators to ensure consistent delivery of programs. The minimum qualifications of our training staff include:
4. Core Learning Outcomes
Murcotts' programs are designed to address the key causal factors for the most common crashes: rear end/nose to tail and reversing collisions.
Murcotts' driver development programs are based on a range of core learning outcomes, including demonstrating proactive driving and incorporating a range of defensive and protective driving techniques.
5. Safety Culture
For drivers, a safety culture means knowing and demonstrating the skills and behaviours that underpin crash free driving and accepting that this is dependent on their attitudes, awareness and motivation. Murcotts' training underpins the principles of a safety culture.
6. BAAMS® Driver Profile
The BAAMS® Driver Profile recognises that on road behaviour of drivers depends on their attitude, awareness and motivation in addition to essential vehicle control and risk management skills. Derived from Behaviour Safety concepts, BAAMS® is the only system of its kind used in Australian driver training programs. Some organisations have recognised its added value to existing Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems.
