Safety training for Gist’s drivers

Gist has provided more than 200 of its drivers with practical advanced driver training that focuses on preventing rollovers and jack-knifing from International Road Safety Training.

This is part of a wider road risk management system which includes driver risk profiles, load plans for optimum loading and weight distribution, route risk assessments and delivery point risk assessments.

Martin Gwynn, chief executive, said: “Safety is paramount to our business. We have thousands of drivers on the road, 24 hours a day and it is vital that we provide the right training and environment for our people to be safe at all times.”
