One in three road crashes involves a vehicle being driven for work. Companies are becoming increasingly aware of the dangers of driver impairment such as driving while tired, following high profile cases such as the Selby rail disaster.
The workshop is hosted by Brake, the road safety charity, in partnership with Driver Hire and will be held at the Bradford & Bingley Sports Club, Bingley, West Yorkshire on Thursday, March 24 (12 noon- 4:30pm).
Mary Williams OBE, chief executive of Brake, said: "All companies who employ drivers should be sending a representative to this workshop. Whether you run five cars or five thousand trucks, businesses have a legal duty under health and safety law to ensure that all journeys are safe - the potential financial and personal costs are simply too high to ignore."
Speakers will cover:
There will also be an interactive demonstration of a driving simulation showing how drivers can be distracted when using a mobile phone.
Registration for the Fit to Drive workshop is £50 (+VAT) per delegate for members of the Fleet Safety Forum and £60 (+VAT) for non-members.
