SAFED (Safe And Fuel Efficient Driving) for Vans

The Company: Site Electrical Ltd, based in Radcliffe, operate a fleet of 50 vans, Mechanical & Electrical Engineers.

SAFED for Vans course has shown that even though we can drive, how we drive has a big significance to the wear and tear of the vehicles components, fuel use and our stress levels. The 47 drivers who took part demonstrated an improved driving technique with an average reduction in gear changes of 42.6%, an average fuel saving of22.9% with only an increased overall journey time of 3%.

The Company: SFM Couriers, based in Knowsley, operate a fleet of 12 vans, work throughout the UK and Europe.

11 Drivers were trained on the SAFED Course. The drivers feed back on the training was how complacent their driving had become with weak observations and over use of vehicle controls, causing unnecessary wear and tear on the vehicle components. The SAFED Course opened the eyes to how we drive in regards to how the vehicles have been designed to be driven!!
SFM Couriers now have two registered inhouse SAFED Assessors.

Dear John

As you know we are a charity working to help the people of Blackpool, Wyre & Fylde access Furniture, Electrical & household goods.

I would just like to thank you on behalf of our charity, staff and volunteers for the excellent SAFED Training course that you ran for our van drivers, who all agreed that the information and course content helpful and something that they will not only use when driving our vans but will also take into their personal driving.

Personally I would like to thank you for the extra time and information you gave, to help me in my job of managing the vans and drivers, which was highly valuable.

Finally I would like to say that I will recommend you to anyone or company who is seeking a truly professional training provider.

Yours Sincerely
Peter Dunn

"Groundwork Cheshire support organisations to identify and implement carbon reduction initiatives.

In August 2012 we secured funding to provide a Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED) programme to a number of local hauliers. JCL Driver Training were selected as the key delivery partner for this programme.This decision was based on the excellent credentials of driver trainers, competitive pricing and the company's professionalism towards training. Training was delivered at a number of different sites across Cheshire with excellent feedback from all companies and drivers involved.

As a direct result of the training companies are on track to significantly improve fuel efficiency, which will lead to a reduction in carbon emissions of over 250 tonnes per year.

Overall Groundwork Cheshire have been very pleased with how the programme has been managed and the results it has generated for the businesses involved"

Hi John,

I just wanted you to see this feedback we got about you - thanks very much for doing such a great job for us!

"Can you pass on to John my thanks and the thanks of all his "pupils".

Some of the less experienced were absolutely astounded at the capabilities of the pickup used and have literally not stopped talking about John and the training he put them through.

One chap said it was better than the "red letter day" off road driving present his partner had got him for his birthday.

So thanks to You, John and everyone else at Fleet Services.

A thoroughly professional course conducted by a truly professional trainer.

Best Regards

Kind Regards,
