How It Works

toolbox notification

 

Their bespoke e-learning platform and Professional Development Plan have been designed to deliver consistent, relevant and useful reminders to your drivers of the dos and don’ts of the job. Once a month your drivers will receive a 15-20 minute pre-made Toolbox Talk, consisting of an introduction to the subject and three key learning points, followed by a short interactive quiz designed to reinforce the points covered. You can log in at any time and track their progress, seeing things like when your drivers last logged in, which talks they’ve watched and how they’re getting on with their quizzes.

A key reason many firms choose Road Skills Online for their drivers’ professional development is that everything is tracked and accessible from a central Company Dashboard. Log in and instantly see how your drivers are progressing, print reports for inclusion in audits and make changes like adding new drivers to your account.

Why Invest in Drivers' Professional Development?

Why PDP

 

Regular professional development has a significant number of benefits for you, your drivers and the public at large. Here we detail the main reasons why companies are joining Road Skills Online to deliver their drivers’ PDP.

Core Benefits of Driver PDP

 

COMPLIANCE, RECOGNITION AND ACCREDITATION

Alongside the numerous benefits, a programme of regular professional development brings to your company, the driver and the public, it’ll also be a tick in the box for various industry accreditations, not to mention your O Licence.

 

Meet Your O Licence Obligations

O Licence PDP

 

A crucial part of O Licence compliance is ensuring that the “laws relating to the driving and operation of vehicles used under the licence are observed.” Failure to do so is a criminal offence (GV79 Section 16). Put simply you must ensure that your drivers comply with the various laws and regulations relating to driving and driving at work. But how can you do that when you only see them a couple of times a week? By regular and consistent professional development.
