O’Donovan Waste Disposal has been enrolling supervisors on the Road Haulage Association (RHA) driver CPC in-cab training.
O’Donovan commissioned its logistical supervisor, Paul Neal, to undertake the training with the RHA, to improve the performance of the company’s drivers. The training took place over two days and covered topics including fuel economy, creating training programmes, reducing accidental damage and assessing the cause of accidents.
The objective of the RHA training is to provide attendees with the appropriate skills to carry out their own in-house driving assessments on staff afterwards. Following the course, Neal will be putting his skills into practice, training the O’Donovan drivers to drive ‘the O’Donovan way’, ensuring all staff are equipped to drive to the highest standard possible, reducing accidents and improving safety for both drivers and vulnerable road users.
Jacqueline O’Donovan, managing director, said: “We pride ourselves on our high standards of training for staff and recognise the importance of developing the skills of our team, ensuring they receive the right training throughout their employment. We see our staff as our biggest asset, so by ensuring they operate to the highest standard this in turn benefits the service we provide to our clients too.”
Road Haulage Association CEO Richard Burnett added: “We are thrilled that O’Donovan Waste Disposal is investing time and money in our training courses. Our course aims to provide drivers with the best level of training so they can feel confident and well informed when driving heavy vehicles on the road.”
