In order to pass the Trailer Test NI, Hamilton Car and Trailer Driving school are able to offer a driver duty of care training and assessment course to companies where employees are required to tow but where no formal training on towing has been carried out.
The course is designed for those employees who already have the B+E entitlement under “grandfather rights” and have therefore not been required to take and pass the B+E test.
As an employer you benefit from showing a duty of care to an element of the employees duties which has probably not received any formal training and has until now been taken for granted. Health and Safety legislation could hold you as the employer liable to prosecution if you have failed to provide any training or on going assessment of an employees ability or suitability to carry out their duties.
We cover an assessment and coaching on reversing, uncoupling and coupling, legal matters and considerations as well as an on-road driving assessment. Employers will then receive a report on the assessment as well as areas where coaching was required.
