Brake to hold seminars to help employers manage at-work road risk

Road safety charity Brake will run two seminars on ‘Introducing, evaluating, and maintaining a work-related road safety programme’ on December 1, 2015 in Huddersfield and February 25, 2016 in Swindon.

The seminars, which are being sponsored by Arval and Interactive Driving Systems, will provide essential training for anyone with responsibility for at-work drivers on why they need to develop a comprehensive work-related road safety programme, and how to develop their programme.

They will also look at the importance of proper data recording and analysis, and how to use data to evaluate road safety risk and inform a work-related road safety programme.

A best practice case study will be presented by Skanska, covering the development and delivery of its work-related road safety programme in the UK.

Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “At-work drivers are significantly more likely to be involved in a crash than people driving on their own time, that’s why it’s imperative for employers to properly manage their work-related road risk.

"This seminar will prove invaluable to any organisation looking to introduce or improve an existing road risk programme."

Brake Professional members can book their place at the seminars for £70 (plus VAT) or £120 (plus VAT) for non-members.
