One of the most common causes of work-related injury and absence from work are vehicle crashes. Human error is the leading cause of crashes. Training can reduce instances of human error. NADS has developed a driver safety and training program specifically targeted for corporate fleets and individuals who perform a lot of work-related driving. Safety training has several benefits including lowering insurance claims, boosting morale, introducing a culture of safety. We offer a two-hour safety training course that includes:
Simulator Drives - The 2010 Module simulator drives take participants through an hour of diverse driving situations where improving their situation awareness (SA) will help them be safer drivers.
The classroom component for 2010 focuses on Situation Awareness. As experienced drivers, complacency is a major factor in lower situation awareness that leads to crashes. During the course we cover how risk perception and complacency relate to situation awareness and attitudes and mental processes a driver can employ to maintain high situation awareness and avoid crashes. The course includes both presentation of concepts and discussion of how these concepts apply to the driving experiences and practices of the participants.
Collaboration with our partners is key to providing safe driver training that is relevant and focused on issues training participants experience on the road. We look forward to working with our partners to develop training modules that address their specific needs.
