PDD/Defensive Driving and Positive Work Ethics to Improve Productivity (5th – 7th February; 6th – 8th May; 8th – 10th July; 5th – 7th October, 2020)

Drivers are an essential part of every organisation, transporting officials and materials to various locations around the country. They have a responsibility to the organisation, staff of other government agencies and private companies they encounter while driving, pedestrians, and other drivers on the road. They have to relate with them well and drive in a responsible manner. Driving on the roads had revealed that not everyone drives well or is courteous. Some people speed aggressively and when confronted talk rudely to staff of government agencies responsible for regulating conduct on the road. Others wander into another lane because they aren’t paying attention. Drivers may follow too closely, make sudden turns without signaling, or weave in and out of traffic. We can’t control the actions of other drivers. But learning defensive driving skills and positive attitudes can help us become productive people and also avoid the dangers caused by other people’s bad driving. This three day course has been designed to enable participants recognise and manage attitudes and behaviours that increase driving risk. These include:

  • Fatigue, stress and emotions
