Managing fatigue and distraction on New Zealand roads
We know there’s a lot going on for drivers in the transport industry.
So, we’ve created driver education seminars specifically for fleet operators and commercial drivers so you can learn how to be fit to drive, manage fatigue and distraction and embrace technology to help keep you (and others) safe on the road.
It’s a FREE seminar brought to you by specialists who understand your concerns and speak your language.
Each session runs from 8:30–10:30am and is hosted by Bathurst driver Greg Murphy.
