Driving in construction

Off-road conditions. And a greater risk of accidents. There’s no driving challenge quite like a construction site. 

Construction is a specific business, which demands specific knowledge. The course is especially dedicated to the challenges the drivers meet on the construction site and when driving off-road.

Our ‘Driving in Construction’ course explains how to get the most out of your truck and maximize uptime, as well as how to handle and maintain a construction truck in order to spare the vehicle and avoid damage. For example, driving on soft beddings with a high and moving center of gravity increases the risk for tipping over. By being aware of the risks and the physics, the drivers may avoid many unpleasant situations and potential accidents.

In this course drivers learn how to increase the their confidence in vehicle control, while maximizing productivity.
