Young drivers at work
Young drivers at work face, and create, a higher risk than other drivers because they are inexperienced as drivers and because driving for work is higher risk than driving for other reasons.
The Young Drivers at Work Workshop, based on the findings of RoSPA’s ‘Young Drivers at Work Study, is designed to help young at-work drivers to understand the risks involved in driving for work, reflect on their own at-work driving experiences, and develop coping strategies.
The workshop’s aims to help the participants to:
- Develop their knowledge about specific driving for work issues
- Gain insight about what influences their driving
- Understand how they can develop coping strategies for driving for work
- Share experiences and learn from each other.
It also aims to help employers to understand the perspective of their young drivers and to review how well their driving for work policies are put into practice.
The workshop takes an ‘active learning’ approach which involves the participants interacting with each other, and with the facilitator, rather than a facilitator delivering the content of the workshop and the delegates passively receiving the information.
