SAFED Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving
Introduction to the Safe And Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED) course
SAFED for Vans has been designed as a single course aimed at improving the safe and fuel efficient driving techniques of LCV drivers .SAFED training has been developed specifically to enable both fleet operators and training providers to implement driver training within the LCV industry.
Ideally, training should be performed in a driver’s usual vehicle. If this is not possible, the training provider should arrange for a similar vehicle Some drivers will benefit from training in a laden vehicle, but this is not essential.
There were approximately 6,897 casualties in LCV road accidents, including 765 killed or seriously injured. In addition 58 billion km is commensurate with approximately 5 billion liters of fuel used. With around 2.5 million vans being used in the UK this relates to an average of 23,160 kms or 14,391 miles per vehicle per year.
The LCV driver is initially assessed by a qualified trainer. Training on best practice in safe and fuel efficient driving techniques is then given. The driver is then reassessed to record improvements in driving technique and where possible actual fuel consumption. The driver is also assessed on performance in safety check and knowledge test exercises as well as the number of faults recorded during the day’s practical driving sessions.
Successful drivers receive a certificate of achievement.
