Brake and Arval collaborate to deliver driver safety training courses

Tracey Fuller Arval

Brake has been supported by Arval to deliver a series of nationwide training courses in 2018 to help companies improve the safety of their at-work drivers.

Brake’s Pledge training gives employers the ability to raise awareness among at-work drivers on six key areas of road safety.

Brake’s business development director Ross Moorlock said: “The Pledge provides employers with the training and tools to engage their staff with essential road safety messages.

“The day-long course can be adapted to suit organisations of all sizes and fleet types and at any stage of their road risk management journey. We are delighted to continue working with Arval to deliver these essential workshops.”

Arval’s customer engagement manager Tracey Fuller (pictured)  said: “Arval is a long standing supporter of the Pledge because we know first-hand that it can help change the safety culture of your business. The Pledge toolkit is very flexible and the resources available can easily be adapted for any size of fleet and driver demographic.

“The six core messages are simple yet extremely impactful and truly have the potential to reach the hearts and minds of all drivers in such a way that they understand how they can improve their safety whilst they drive. In my opinion, there is a place for the Pledge in every fleet safety programme.”

The courses will be delivered by Arval’s Tracey Fuller who is “passionate about road safety” and will share her experiences of using Brake’s Pledge.

Course attendees will receive access to Brake's Pledge resource toolkit which includes videos and posters on six core principles of safe driving:

  • Slow – within speed limits
  • Sober – free from alcohol or drugs
  • Sharp – not tired, ill or with poor eyesight
  • Silent – phone off and out of reach
  • Secure – belted up in a safe vehicle
  • Sustainable – only when you have to

Forthcoming Pledge courses:

  • Thursday 8 March 2018, Birmingham (UK)
