‘Content & Currency’ are the two words the Victoria Police Heavy Vehicle Unit used when asking about driver induction during a multiple fatality accident investigation.
“What’s covered in your content and when did you last do a refresher?”
A Driver Handbook is a tool to educate drivers on CoR responsibilities, fitness for work, drugs & alcohol, general OHS, vehicle inspections and safety. By using a Driver Handbook for induction, you can easily demonstrate your content.
Induction as a ‘one-off’ when a new driver starts isn’t enough. No-one will remember what was covered in the induction 5 years ago and information, laws, standards and technology changes. We recommend re-inducting drivers annually. It doesn’t need to take a long time or be onerous but provides up to date information and resets company expectations.
We’ve Got You Covered
CoR Comply includes a 13 page Driver CoR & Safety Handbook in easy to understand language – see sample pages. It comes with a multiple choice assessment so you have records of drivers understanding the key information such as reporting CoR breaches, reporting changes to driver licence status, fatigue management, pre-trip inspections. That’s just one part of the CoR Comply Heavy Vehicle Driver Package. It also includes procedures on Driver Licencing & Competency, Fitness for Work, a training matrix so you can track when re-induction is due and an induction checklist to tick everything off.
