DHL rolls out safety courses for the logistics sector

DHL Exel Supply Chain has created a series of courses to help companies in the UK improve their health and safety records and reduce costs.

The course includes 30 practical and desk-based modules on first aid, manual handling, fire safety and driving techniques, and has also been designed to help trainers improve their skills and provide a more effective way of teaching.

It was initially developed for the company’s Patient Transport Services business, but after receiving a Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents DHL decided to make the programme more widely available.

The company also has plans to roll out the initiative in other countries once it is established in the UK.
