Brake, the road safety charity, has announced a new partnership with GreenRoad Technologies to deliver a workshop for fleet managers on the key fleet safety topic of driver behaviour and safe, eco-friendly driving.
The workshop, ‘Smart solutions for greener, safer drivers’, takes place on Thursday 29 September in central Birmingham.
Leading academics and suppliers to the fleet industry will discuss using in-vehicle technology and driver training to improve driver behaviour and lower crash rates, emissions and costs.
Dr Will Murray, of Interactive Driving Solutions, will advise on how to implement driver training initiatives successfully and Michael Gwilt of GreenRoad will discuss the latest innovations in driver training techniques and in-vehicle technology. Speed control, fuel efficiency, and achieving board level support for initiatives, will be discussed, along with the best ways to achieve driver buy-in to initiatives.
Mark Moore of Bunzl will provide a best practice case study on how Bunzl use in-vehicle technologies to run a targeted training programme for their drivers. As a result of the programme, Bunzl have seen a significant reduction in their crash rate and insurance premium, as well as reduced fuel usage and vehicle maintenance costs. The scheme is also popular with their drivers.
Attendance costs £80 + VAT for Brake subscribers, or £90 + VAT for non-subscribers. For further information, visit www.fleetsafetyforum.org.
Caroline Perry, Development Director at Brake said: “This workshop provides a valuable insight into improving your fleet’s safety, efficiency, and finances through easy to implement initiatives. I would urge all fleet professionals with an interest in driver training and driver behaviour to attend.”
