The RHA partners with The Driver Handbook to deliver revolutionary driver communications

2 February 2024

We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with the RHA to deliver a revolutionary driver communication solution to RHA Members. This exciting new partnership sees the creation of the RHA Driver Handbook.

This new partner service for RHA members brings together a digital solution developed by specialists in road transport, fleet management, health and safety and communications; with the RHA’s unrivalled expertise in HGV and PCV operations and compliance.

The RHA Driver Handbook comprises a mobile app for drivers, enabled by TDHConnect® a powerful content management system which puts fleet managers in full control of sharing up-to-the-minute essential information and accessing live reporting on driver progress and comprehension.  

Whilst the technology is important, the content available is much more than just a ‘driver handbook’. It’s a unique combination and portfolio of essential information that’s core to the solution. As well as industry-leading handbooks for a range of vehicle types, the content includes a bank of toolbox talks (with a new one published each month), access to the full Highway Code, digital declarations, template policies and risk assessments, and much more. Offered at a fixed price, RHA members have unlimited access to an extensive, trusted library of live content that is regularly reviewed and updated. Content can also be customised by managers in TDHConnect® and supplemented with company-specific information, all delivered directly to a driver’s device.

The new partnership sees the creation of a digital service for RHA Members comprising:

  1. Mobile app for drivers – ensuring instant driver access to regulatory and safety-critical information
  2. Content management system, TDHConnect® – putting managers in full control of sharing essential information with drivers
  3. Content library for all operator types – providing up-to-date and trusted technical information that can be tailored to a company’s own operational needs

“I’m delighted that we’re expanding our relationship with the RHA in this way”, said Glen Davies, Managing Director, The Driver Handbook. “As editor of the RHA Operator’s Handbook, to be able to help revolutionise the RHA Driver Handbook is a great progression. This tech alternative puts managers in full control of sharing up-to-the-minute information on compliance, safety and operational matters. Our technology provides creative content, instantaneous updates and live reporting; all of which mean that operators no longer have a reliance on paper-based communications with their drivers”.

Mark Taylor, Commercial Director, RHA said “The responsibility that professional drivers carry in terms of road safety and regulatory compliance is huge. So we’re excited to bring The RHA Driver Handbook to our members to help drivers access a wealth of information to help them stay compliant and most importantly safe!”
