Two pieces of news provide a flicker of hope amid the doom and gloom.
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) April 21, 2014
Taxi, limousine and other livery drivers are an important part of public and private transportation, and can play a key role in transportation infrastructure in larger cities. Over one million for-hire trips are made each day throughout the United States. But the commercial livery business has above-average safety risks that must be addressed. This industry has one of the highest rates of nonfatal assaults, and studies indicated that drivers are 20 times more likely to be a victim of homicide on the job.
This industry has a higher risk of personal danger than other industries because livery drivers often work alone, for long hours, and often at night. In addition, both livery drivers and passengers can be at risk of injury if proper procedures are not followed. Without proper training, there is an increased likelihood of vehicle or property damage.
Succeed Management Solutions created the Commercial Livery Driving Training series to teach drivers how to reduce the risks they and their passengers face every day. This three-part training course can help drivers stay safe, and remain compliant with county, state, and federal regulations.
The first course, Workplace Violence, is an important class that teaches drivers how to work smart, spot the warning signs of danger, and avoid violence. The second course, Driver Safety, focuses on driving preparation, defensive driving techniques, and how to deal with adverse weather and other conditions. The final course, Passenger Safety, provides instruction on best practices to ensure passenger safety, and how to effectively communicate with passengers.
This Commercial Livery Driving Training series is designed to help drivers ensure the environment inside their vehicle is as safe as possible. These training courses can help organizations save costs and improve working conditions by reducing risks, protecting lives, and helping to avoid incidents, accidents, and claims. The training can also assist organizations in complying with regulatory requirements.
This training is available in both English and Spanish and is web-accessible. It can be assigned and managed through the Training Track™ application of the Risk Management Center, an easy-to-use, automated learning management system. Training Track helps organizations maintain accurate training records, and document compliance.
