Do you have medically fit drivers ?


The driver is the responsibility of the Transport Operator (Section 49 of the Road Traffic Act). If a driver is known to be medically unfit to drive and has not informed the MEC (Member of Executive Council) of this fact and continues to drive the company could see claims arise from accidents caused by the medically unfit driver. As a transport Operator, one has a responsibility to ensure the drivers are healthy enough not to present a danger to other road users and to safeguard the Company vehicles

Occupational

Training

Driver Training

Motor vehicles present a signficant part of any company's operating expenditure. High running costs and accidents associated with negligence and poor driving behaviour are incurred annually. The view that these costs are adequately covered by insurance is misleading.

Why Train your staff

The employee who receives the necessary training is more able to perform in their job. The training will give the employee a greater understanding of their responsibilities within their role, and in turn build their confidence. This confidence will enhance their overall performance and this can only benefit the company.

Skilled Development Act

Skills development should be a continuous, planned and structured process that is influenced by the SETA requirements for submitting Work Skills Plan's(WSP) and Annual Training Reports (ATRs), but not dependent on them. In these tough economic times, Return on Investment in training is critical.

Why use accredited training providers?

It is a criteria for Seta grants and SARS tax rebates
