“The 10-15 minutes it takes to complete is just about right – it’s short enough to keep their attention, but not long enough for them to see it as a chore”
During a recent FORS audit, the auditor asked to see the company’s driver training records, however using the Road Skills Online system meant this wasn’t a problem; as Chris explains, “I showed the auditor the ‘My Drivers’ dashboard and she said ‘wow that’s good’ – I even showed her when drivers had passed each Toolbox Talk.”
Chris concludes by saying “Working with Road Skills has been good, their tech team has always been on hand
to help out if little things go wrong – like someone’s forgotten their password, and the backup from the guys in their office is great, keeping in touch to make sure everything’s going well. The really good thing is that we know we’re spot on doing the Toolbox Talks for our FORS audit without having to try and get everybody together each month. It’s all so much easier and simpler for us.”
Mtec has recently renewed its 40 driver subscription to the Road Skills Online Professional Development Plan. The program features monthly bite-size Toolbox Talks delivered in an accessible format that is available 24/7 on mobile phones, tablets, laptops and desktops. The solution provides management with an ‘at a glance’ dashboard of all drivers’ progress with the ability to export this information as evidence for audits.
