Introduction to Health & Safety


Health & Safety is paramount to any business. Making sure you adhere to regulations surrounding this area in the transport industry could be a matter of life or death. 

This module is an overview of rules, regulations and responsibilities of the professional driver. 

This is a 3 ½ hour course, which can be combined with any of our other 3 ½ hour modules to complete the required 7 hours of Driver CPC training. It might be particularly useful to combine this with the ‘On Site Health & Safety’ module to make up a full day of training.

  • Introduction to Health & Safety
  • Legal Responsibilities
  • Specific Health & Safety legislation, including
    -  Manual Handling
    -  Work equipment & lifting equipment
    -  RIDDOR and COSHH
    -  Personal Protective

Course objectives
