Fleet safety management training course now available in Kazakhstan

21 September 2018

We’re delighted to announce that our EASST Academy Road Safety at Work: Online Course for Managers is now available in the Kazakh language.

Developed in collaboration with Cranfield University and the IRU Academy, the fully accredited course is designed to give managers and businesses the skills needed to deliver and sustain a robust road safety management strategy.

This new Kazakh version of the course has been made possible by the kind support of Kazakhstan-based company RIST LLP. RIST LLP is certified to ISO 39001:2012 Road Traffic Safety Management Systems and is committed to providing and maintaining safe systems of work at all times for all employees, associates and contractors regardless of the task they are performing. Their mission is to ensure that every single one of their stakeholders go home to their families safe, healthy and injury-free at the end of every working day. In recognising that driving is one of the most hazardous activities carried out in the workplace, RIST LLP has set out a set of procedures, policies and guidelines which ensure that the management of road-related risk is paramount within the organisation as well as further afield by acting as the official organiser and distributor of our EASST Academy course in the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Indeed, with a road fatality rate estimated as 24.2 per 100,000 of the population, road risk in Kazakhstan is exceptionally higher than the global average and over eight times more than the UK. With one in three road crashes globally taking place when people are driving for work purposes, reducing the risk of commercial vehicles and public transport globally could play a very significant role in cutting road fatalities and achieving the targets of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. Evidence has shown that businesses that adopt a thorough approach to driver safety can also benefit from reduced insurance, less damage to vehicles and goods, better staff retention and a significant reduction in working time lost through accidents.

The course is accessible online 24/7 and has no geographical boundaries. Through a series of 10 video lectures, quizzes and reading materials, the course uses real-life examples and case studies to give those who manage road safety at work the competencies and skills they need to safely manage a fleet of vehicles - awarding them at the end with an accredited certificate of completion.

Compatible with laptops, tablets and smartphones, the course can be accessed now at www.easstacademy.org/kz/fleetsafety
