CHAMBERLAIN Transport is backing calls from the UK's senior traffic commissioner Monday 29th April 2013
CHAMBERLAIN Transport is backing calls from the UK's senior traffic commissioner for hauliers to provide CPC training for their drivers.
The Crewe based haulage and distribution specialists have supported recent comments by Beverley Bell urging operators to support drivers through the legally required training they must complete by September 2014.
Despite the legal CPC training requirements Bell said many haulage firms still do not help their drivers to pay for CPC courses or give them the time off to do the training – often making them carry out the training at weekends.
"We completely support the comments made by Beverley Bell and are committed to making sure our drivers get the most out of the training they receive," said Simon Chamberlain, director of Chamberlain Transport.
"To do this there is a cost, but we see this as an important investment to ensure the continued long term growth and stability of the business."
Chamberlain’s commitment to delivering a high quality of driver training for its drivers has already seen its first four drivers meet the levels required by legislation.
"We understand the value of having well-trained drivers that are able to carry out their work to the highest possible levels," said Simon.
"The law requires all drivers to complete 35 hours of CPC training by September next year but we are already at a level well above what is required by legislation."
