Defensive Driving training has been ongoing in BEC for many years. In 1994 however, BEC took the initiative to train in-house Instructors to assist in the training of all employees. The course is one of several defensive driving courses certified by the National Safety Council (US).
The purpose of the course is to effectively train and educate employees in safe driving practices, in order to prevent hazards and collisions and to reduce the number of accidents both on and off the job.
Every employee is eligible and encouraged to take this course, as its aim is to improve the driving practices of employees both in New Providence and the Family Islands.
In 2006, the course celebrated its 12th anniversary and the Instructors were recognized for their outstanding performance and contribution to the program.
