At Invicta Couriers, we believe that well-trained drivers are the cornerstone of a reliable and cost-effective service. That’s why we invest heavily in comprehensive driver training programs. Our training not only emphasises safety and health but also focuses on efficiency and cost-effectiveness, directly benefiting our customers.
Smart Driving: Smart driving goes beyond adhering to speed limits and road rules. It encompasses advanced driving techniques that improve fuel efficiency, reduce wear and tear on vehicles, and minimise the likelihood of accidents. Our drivers are trained in eco-friendly driving practices that not only contribute to a greener environment but also ensure a smoother, safer, and more economical journey for your goods.
Cycle Awareness: With more cyclists on the roads, cycle awareness training is more important than ever. Our drivers are trained to be vigilant, patient, and respectful towards cyclists. This training reduces the risk of accidents and ensures a harmonious coexistence with all road users, making our deliveries safer and more efficient. This training includes the drivers going out on the road on a bike and later discussing the potential risks they see, a good way to see it from the cyclist’s point of view.
Security and Counter-Terrorism Measures: In today’s world, understanding and mitigating security risks is crucial. Our drivers receive specialised training in security and counter-terrorism measures. This includes recognising and reporting suspicious activities, understanding the importance of secure delivery, and ensuring the safety of the cargo they transport.
Preventing Slips, Trips, and Falls: Safety isn’t just about driving. It extends to handling loads that come in all shapes, sizes and weights. Our drivers are trained to identify and avoid potential hazards that could lead to slips, trips, and falls during loading and unloading. This careful attention to detail not only protects our drivers but also ensures the integrity of your goods.
Manual Handling: Proper manual handling techniques are crucial for the health and well-being of our drivers. Through our training programs, they learn the correct ways to lift, carry, and move packages, reducing the risk of injuries.
Load Security: Load security is paramount. Improperly secured loads can lead to damaged goods and pose safety risks. Our drivers are trained in effective load securing techniques, ensuring that your goods remain safe and intact throughout their journey. Weight distribution on a vehicle is also important for the stability of a vehicle on the road.
At Invicta Couriers, driver training is an ongoing commitment. By focusing on smart driving, cycle awareness, security, and safety, we not only uphold our high standards but also contribute to the overall safety of the roads we share.
