Driving Ergonomics

As an employer, you’re no doubt already aware that you have a duty of care to provide a safe work environment for your employees. However, sometimes employers forget that this duty of care doesn’t just apply within the working environment, but that it extends to any employees who drive a vehicle as part of their job role.

At Work Active we offer vehicle ergonomics training that will address all of the health and safety issues that arise from spending hours in the driving seat, to ensure that your employees stay safe and healthy when they’re on the road.

What are the benefits of vehicle ergonomics training?

During our training your employees will learn how to set up their driving position in the most ergonomic way, together with the most safe and effective way to set up and use a mobile office. We’ll also show them a range of stretches and exercises that they can perform both in and outside the car to ensure comfort and to reduce fatigue.

By learning these things, we’ve found that on-the-road employees develop an increased awareness of health and safety issues, plus they’re less likely to be involved in a driving related accident or suffer a driving related injury.

What’s more, by attending the course and gaining their vehicle ergonomics certificate, your workers will feel as though you really care about providing a safe and healthy environment for them to work in. Plus, of course, you will have gone a long way towards fulfilling your duty of care in this area.
