Trailer Handling Courses: Promoting Safe Towing Practices

Trailer Handling Courses: Promoting Safe Towing Practices

At Beyond Driving, we understand the importance of safe trailer handling practices in the workplace. That’s why we’ve been busy delivering accredited trailer handling training to organisations like National Grid in Derbyshire. Our comprehensive courses cover all aspects of trailer operation, ensuring compliance with health and safety legislation while promoting safety awareness among employees.

Understanding the Importance of training

Towing trailers, caravans, or mobile plant equipment requires more than just driving skills. It demands hazard awareness, safe practices, and a thorough understanding of trailer laws and regulations. Our trailer handling courses are designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to operate trailers safely and effectively in their working roles.

What’s Covered

Our trailer handling courses cover a wide range of essential topics, including:

  • Understanding trailer weight and maximum authorised mass (MAM)
  • Trailer equipment and capabilities assessment
  • Pre-operation trailer checks for safety
  • Trailer loading, security, and stability
  • Coupling and uncoupling exercises
  • Reversing and maneuvering in various environments
  • Awareness of surroundings and potential hazards
  • Trailer test and assessment to evaluate proficiency

LANTRA Certified Instructors

Our instructors are not only qualified driving instructors but also LANTRA certified 4×4 and trailer trainers. While there is no legal requirement to use DVSA Approved Driving Instructors (ADIs) for B+E training, we believe in providing the highest level of expertise and safety for our clients. With occupational road risk inherent in trailer use, our LANTRA certification ensures that our training meets the highest standards, providing peace of mind to both us and our clients.
