In August, twelve Topspeed Courier drivers are undertaking five days of ADR training, bringing the total number of qualified ADR trained drivers at Topspeed to 35, over a third of our driving force.
Under government guidelines, drivers of vehicles carrying dangerous goods in packages, are required to hold a special certificate of training – known as an ADR Certificate.
The course provides drivers with information and the tools so that they:
- are aware of the hazards in the carriage of dangerous goods
- can take steps to reduce the likelihood of an incident taking place
- can take all necessary measures for their own safety and that of the public and the environment to limit the effects of any incident that does occur
- have individual practical experience of the actions they will need to take
Stephen Clegg, Topspeeds Managing Director and DGSA says “this is a further commitment by Topspeed to invest in its staff and provide fully bespoke and flexible services to the market”
