Drivers are measured and employed against set criteria and high standards. The minimum employment requirements are;
- Five years working experience.
- Medical examination.
- Written references that are contacted and carefully analysed.
- Pre-employment competency test, done by the in-house driver trainer.
- Compulsory annual medical check up’s.
To uphold these standards, Volvo regularly sends out a qualified driver trainer, to test and evaluate each driver. Although a Contract of Employment is signed by the drivers, further specific “House Rules” are retained, which is in alignment with the customer’s needs and demands. Drivers are well remunerated and work on incentive schemes to encourage a high safety standard and upkeep of all vehicles.
Through vehicle tracking and on-board computer analysis, drivers are constantly monitored and analysed according to their driving patterns and on-road performance. This ensures an accurate evaluation and enables immediate interventions in the event of any abnormalities.
Health & Safety
Strict health, safety, security and environmental criteria are enforced. Extensive training and accreditation programmes are in place, together with continual monitoring and management of all staff and equipment.
Fatigue as well as stop and go management is in place and all drivers are regularly tested for alcohol and drug abuse.
To further assist with the upkeep of safety, the ICAB was installed in conjunction with our insurance brokers.
The ICAB device, an onboard system, automates warnings and emergency indicators that initiate a response sequence events.
Recorded data from all incidents like severe driving events or over-speeding, fatigue, drive-time variations, hot zones, distance travelled will be captured and processed to produce an extremely comprehensive risk report, to assist in providing an overall efficient risk management system.
This ensures a permanent 24-hour standby for emergency and security purposes. This guarantees enhanced efficiency and optimal reaction time to any situation.
