Description

TruckSmart

TruckSmart driver training is a seven-hour training course for all commercial HGV drivers, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to operate safe and roadworthy vehicles.

TruckSmart overview

TruckSmart focuses on the importance of driving roadworthy HGVs and the role of the driver in ensuring that vehicles and loads are safe and legal at all times. Alongside TruckSmart driver training there is an e-Learning module. The accompanying Fleet Manager Toolkit provides tools, guidance and resources for managers looking to develop and implement an HGV safety system within their organisation.

TruckSmart tracks a series of five themes. The five simple messages are echoed throughout both the TruckSmart training course and the accompanying Fleet Manager Toolkit. They are:

  • Know it: a safe vehicle matters
  • Check it: walk around before, during and after journeys
  • Load it: plan and position your load safely
  • Secure it: secure your load correctly
  • Report it: record problems and take action
