Van Excellence - Managers



The objectives of the Van Excellence for Managers course is to support managers in reducing costs, environmental impact and improving safety performance across the van fleet. It aims to tackle the challenges of influencing and managing a safety-first culture, and how these challenges can be overcome by focusing on key performance areas such as driver competence, vehicle standards and operational processes.
