RoSPA delivers HGV safety training in UAE
RoSPA has partnered with UAE-based Tristar Transport to deliver road safety awareness training to more than 500 heavy-vehicle drivers.
RoSPA was commissioned to launch the workshops under the auspices of the UAE’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA).
Bus, truck, trailer and tanker drivers from across the UAE attended the workshop which covered defensive driving and safe decision making. RoSPA has also trained Tristar employees to deliver the workshops in the future, which will increase training across the region.
Keith Bell, from RoSPA’s driver and fleet solutions team, said:“One of the key ways to improve road safety is through education that is tailored to the local driving culture. RoSPA has a strategy of helping local people to help other local people through consultancy and trainer certification.”
