Brake calls on fleets to get ‘back to basics’ on road risk

Road safety charity Brake is running a new seminar for fleet professionals called Managing road risk: back to basics. The event takes place on Tuesday October 9, 2012 in London.

The seminar, sponsored by SmartDrive, aims to help both new and experienced managers review their fleet safety policies and procedures and engage board support in prioritising fleet safety to save lives, money and the environment.

Leading academics and practitioners will discuss the importance of reviewing fleet procedures and what companies need to do to reduce their road risk. A best practice case study will show how one company has successfully introduced measures to manage occupational road risk.

The event will feature a range of expert speakers, including:
• Shaun Helman, Principal Psychologist at the Transport Research Laboratory
• John Davidge, Head of Fleet Technical, Cardinus Risk Management

Managing road risk: back to basics is being run by the charity’s Fleet Safety Forum, a not-for-profit initiative for fleets. Delegate places are limited and cost £80 +VAT for Fleet Safety Forum subscribers and £90 +VAT for non-subscribers.

Caroline Perry, development director at Brake, said: “Safety is crucial to the success of any fleet operator, in terms of employee safety and wellbeing, but also for legal, financial, and reputational reasons. This seminar is a great opportunity for anyone working with a fleet to improve their knowledge of road safety matters and to pick up tips on how to encourage engagement with road safety across their organisation.”
