FORS launches pedestrian safety eLearning module
16 January 2020
The free online training is designed to help commercial vehicle drivers keep pedestrians safe.
FORS Pedestrian Safe highlights the specific dangers and breadth of risks pedestrians face, with participants learning techniques which can be adopted to mitigate such risks.
Checking driving conditions, avoiding incorrect assumptions, and how to keep focused when driving are some of the topics covered in the 20-minute module for drivers of all types. Managers and other office-based staff are also encouraged to take the course, which was developed in collaboration with the Transport for London (TfL) Vision Zero team and FORS Gold member Cemex.
The module is designed to be completed on handheld devices as well as PCs. It aims to help reduce incidents as part of FORS’s continued commitment to drive-up road safety standards across the transport industry.
