ONE of the UK’s leading car and commercial vehicle specialists is using an e-learning product designed to improve driver safety.
Greenhous Group, which has eight locations across the West Midlands and mid-Wales, has adopted TTC Group’s DriverProtect Continuum to improve the driving skills of more than 300 employees.
The online ‘compliance’ platform provides users with customised training for each driver based on a ‘risk score’ and individual development needs.
Using bespoke software, it then tracks driver compliance and tailors interventions, providing bespoke training solutions to reduce the number of poor driving events being recorded.
These will be in the form of over 50 short interactive e-learning modules, videos, hints and tips, meaning that Greenhous Group employees will be able to complete courses at a time to suit them on any device.
Gina Hughes, health and safety co-ordinator at Greenhous, said: ‘We were approached by TTC Group to look at trialling DriverProtect Continuum and immediately liked the way we could manage all of the driver compliance through one simple-to-use platform.’
She continued: ‘It automatically takes care of licence checks for us and profiles a driver’s risk score, which then allows us to tailor training accordingly. This could be speed awareness, driving in certain conditions or understanding how technology works within a vehicle.
‘All of the training is done through e-learning modules, with real-time information on an individual’s progress available at a touch of a button. We are confident that this solution from TTC will result in fewer driving incidents, which equates to less downtime for our drivers and less expensive repairs.’
Telford-based TTC Group, which delivers more than 1.5million hours of training every year, is one of the UK’s leading road safety and fleet management organisations.
It has invested more than £200,000 to develop DriverProtect Continuum and expects demand for its technology to come from SMEs, large businesses and public-sector organisations.
