DRIVER TRAINING

Motor vehicle safety training is a must for any organization concerned with the inherent risk of being on the road. Driver Training includes driving safety, accidents and emergencies, defensive driving strategies and more.

Accidents & Emergencies

This course provides guidance for employees who drive vehicles on the job, describing post-accident procedures such as who to call, what information to provide and collect, and what forms to complete. Information is also provided on what employee drivers can expect during the accident investigation that will be carried out by their organization and what corrective actions could be recommended to prevent similar accidents in the future.

The course also discusses strategies for responding safely to unexpected vehicle emergencies, such as a mechanical failure. Equipping a vehicle with an accident kit and emergency supplies is also part of the recommended preparation strategies as well as some tips on preventing the major causes of accidents and emergencies.

Course Duration: 0.5 Hour(s)

Adjusting to Changing Conditions

In 2005, 848,000 crashes in the U.S. occurred under rain, sleet, or snow conditions, and although there are far fewer vehicles on roadways at nighttime, over half of all vehicle crashes involving fatalities occurred in dim or dark lighting conditions. Certainly, environmental conditions play a significant role in vehicle crashes. The most unfortunate aspect of such collisions is that oftentimes they are entirely preventable. The main culprit in such crashes is not the effect of the environment but the drivers who failed to recognize the hazardous conditions and drive appropriately.

Environmental conditions that can affect driving include weather, visibility, and road surface quality. All of these require drivers to be able to respond appropriately and adjust their driving performance to make sure the vehicle handles safely under the conditions present. This course reviews these environmental conditions and explains the required driver responses to ensure safe vehicle operations.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Aggressive Driving

Aggressive driving is a serious problem on American roadways. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that aggressive drivers cause two-thirds of all fatal crashes today. While drivers under 30 are most likely to show aggressive driving behavior at the wheel, aggressive driving is a problem that crosses generational, racial, gender, and geographic lines.

Aggressive driving is a problem that puts all drivers, passengers, and pedestrians in danger. Aggressive drivers may be unpredictable, take risks, make erratic maneuvers, and have little regard for the welfare of others. Therefore, even drivers who may not consider themselves aggressive should still learn strategies for how to avoid provoking an aggressive driving incident. This course proposes strategies to avoid both perpetrating and provoking an aggressive driving incident and discusses speeding as a primary and deadly symptom of aggressive driving. It is hoped that this course will help our roadways become safer and less stressful, which will ultimately save lives, minimize injuries, and save on property damage repair costs.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Dangers of Speeding

Speeding is a contributing factor in nearly one-third of all fatal crashes. Since 1995 the number of deaths and injuries attributed to speed have continued to rise. Technological advances in vehicle safety and passenger protection have not been able to prevent the thousands of needless deaths each year from speed-related crashes. Therefore, it is essential for all law enforcement officers to understand the dangers associated with speeding whether they are on duty or off the clock using their own vehicles.

The best solution to the problem of speeding is to make drivers aware of the problem and to equip them to drive at safe speeds, which are the two main objectives of this course. Various topics are covered in this module, including what factors influence drivers to speed; what risks arise from excessive speed; how speed affects stopping distance; what economic costs stem from speeding and aggressive driving; how to avoid becoming involved in a collision with a speeder; and what factors to consider in choosing a safe speed for vehicle operation.

This course focuses specifically on the dangers of speeding. Speeding during police pursuits is covered in a separate course, Police Pursuit Driving.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Defensive Driving Strategies

A worker is more likely to suffer fatal injury while operating a vehicle than any other job activity. The need for enhancing safety when driving cannot be understated. Unfortunately, improving one’s own driving ability does not guarantee safety on the roadway. No matter how safe a driver is trained to be, he or she cannot control the behavior of other vehicle operators. Encountering unsafe drivers is an inevitable part of every driver’s experience.

This course is aimed at preparing drivers for encountering potential hazards on the roadway. It follows a three-fold approach by encouraging drivers to anticipate, recognize, and respond to driving hazards. Within this framework, topics covered include principles of defensive driving, the need for driving defensively, practical instruction on how to drive defensively, instruction on maintaining a safety zone perimeter around the driver’s vehicle, and effective stopping distance.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Distracted Driving

A brief glance at a new billboard, a turn of the head to look into the backseat, a routine cell phone conversation — these all have the potential to cause a deadly motor vehicle accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 6 million to 8.3 million drivers crashed in the past five years as a result of being distracted. On average, drivers require about 3/4 of a second to react. When a driver’s attention is diverted from the roadway, that reaction time can be drastically increased, and traumatic injury or fatality can be the tragic result.

This course examines the problem of distracted driving and offers solutions and prevention measures for avoiding accidents due to distracted driving. Recent case studies are also presented along with a discussion of the lessons that can be learned from each.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

In fulfillment of these objectives, the course covers topics such as highway hypnosis, velocitation, safe passing and merging, navigating interchanges, work zone safety, safe following distance, and pre-trip planning tips.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Impaired Driving

On our congested roadways, it is more important than ever to drive with a clear head and a sharp focus. On average, a driver makes over 200 decisions per mile, so it is critical that a driver remain alert behind the wheel. Driving while intoxicated, under the influence of certain medications or drugs, or when especially tired can lead to tragic results. In fact, impaired leads cancer and all other causes of death for people ages 3 to 33 years old and approximately 1.5 million drivers were arrested annually for DWI between 1993 and 2003. For employers, this has amounted to a loss of $3.1 billion in incidents that involved alcohol.

The purpose of this course is to encourage safe driving practices among employees, reduce employee costs due to incidents caused by impaired driving, and educate drivers on the factors that contribute to impaired driving. Driving is a common task required of many employees nationwide and even a small increase in safe driving practices can reduce the number of accidents and, most importantly, save lives. Due to the widespread nature of the alcohol-impaired driving problem in particular, special attention has been given to this problem.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

The culmination of these discussions centers on applying the knowledge gained to reduce crash risks.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Safe Backing

Most of a driver’s time behind the wheel is spent while the vehicle is moving forward. The repetition and accumulation of experience can help make for safer drivers behind the wheel. But unfortunately this does not mean they will be equally good or safe when it comes to backing. Backing is one of the least practiced driving skills and therefore can pose a great risk, even for experienced drivers.

Despite the relatively little time spent backing compared to driving forward, backing still accounts for between 25-30% of vehicle accidents nationwide. It is not hard to see why learning, reviewing, and practicing safe backing techniques is a key part of reducing vehicle accidents.

This course focuses on the various safety precautions and techniques for backing safely in a number of situations. Topics such as safe backing procedures, backing with a trailer, blind spots, adjusting mirrors, and parallel parking are covered.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Seat Belt & Airbag Safety

Over 42,000 people died nationwide in motor vehicle crashes in 2006, according to the NHTSA. In over 50% of these fatal crashes, a significant cause of death was the driver”s decision not to wear their seat belts. Observational studies by the NHTSA have found that a startling 18% of vehicle occupants do not wear seat belts.

Seat belts, airbags, and other safety devices are quite effective at accomplishing what they have been designed to do: save lives. But the one variable that designers and safety engineers cannot control is human behavior. Ultimately, it comes down to a choice for drivers and passengers to use these available safety technologies, taking the 3 seconds or so it requires to click the seat belt into a locked position and understand how best to take advantage of the other vehicle safety components such as airbags. If more drivers and passengers did this habitually, more lives would be spared the tragedies of injury and death. Over the past decade, 62,000 lives have been saved and over one million injuries prevented by seat belts. In 2006, an estimated 15,383 lives were saved by seat belts alone.

Course Duration: 0.5 Hour(s)

Securing Materials for Transportation

This course covers the dangers of carrying materials, whether inside the vehicle, the trunk, a storage compartment, or a trailer. Drivers are instructed on the basic safety considerations for securing such materials properly so that the danger they pose is reduced. By remembering to check for loose materials, and tying down or securing any that are identified, drivers can reduce the chance of causing serious injury to themselves or others.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Sharing the Road

The number of crashes involving at least one car and one truck averages over 200,000 per year in the U.S. That number grows even higher when considering crashes involving motorcycles, bicyclists, and pedestrians. The frequency of these incidents makes it clear that drivers need to be made aware of the unique handling and performance abilities and limitations of the different vehicle types. Armed with this knowledge, drivers may then tailor their driving to the conditions present when driving in the vicinity of these other vehicles.

There are a different set of factors to consider, for example, when driving near a large truck than when driving near a motorcycle–factors such as the different vehicle sizes, their different performance abilities and limitations, and the different stopping distances they require. These are the kinds of factors that the course aims to review.

Course Duration: 1 Hour(s)

Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance

Regularly inspecting a vehicle for problems and following a schedule of routine maintenance are critical to ensuring safety and prolonging the life of the vehicle. Unfortunately, however, the majority of vehicles on the road are not properly inspected or maintained. A recent national survey found that at least 80% of vehicles are not adequately maintained and have at least one component needing attention. This not only means that most vehicles on the roadway are not operating under optimally safe conditions, it also suggests that drivers do not recognize the need for following a regular schedule of inspecting and maintaining their vehicles.

This course focuses on drivers’ responsibility to inspect their vehicles and maintain them in good working condition. Critical and pertinent topics are covered such as what to inspect, how to document inspections, the cost-saving benefits of properly maintaining a vehicle, how to check tire pressure, and how to identify common vehicle problems before they contribute to costly major mechanical failures.

Course Duration: 0.5 Hour(s)

Vehicle Safety and Security

An unfortunate reality that any driver or fleet manager has to deal with is the security and protection of his or her vehicles. According to the FBI, a vehicle is stolen in the U.S. every 26.4 seconds. In addition to vehicle theft, a surprising amount of other causes of damage and loss of property, as well as injury and fatality to personnel, is sustained every year by vehicle operators and the organizations they represent behind the wheel. Greater attention to security and safety measures of protection should be implemented to effectively curb this trend, contain the losses, and save lives.

This course is dedicated to educating drivers and vehicle managers and improving vehicle safety and security. Receiving particular emphasis in this course are the areas of preventing vehicle theft and enhancing the personal safety of vehicle occupants. Regarding vehicle security, topics covered include, among others, how to secure a vehicle safely when parking, what security devices can be installed to enhance protection, and how to follow a comprehensive “layered” approach to vehicle security. Vehicle safety is also featured prominently in this course, and topics such as safety tips for protecting vehicle occupants from injury in a collision and properly using vehicle-equipped safety devices are discussed.
