Brake has announced that its 2017 Fleet Safety Conference will be supported by FORS.

The annual conference brings together fleet managers and suppliers to share best practice in managing road risk.

It will cover topical issues including engaging drivers with safety, safe vehicles, road safety in your community and protecting vulnerable road users.

FORS, the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, is a voluntary accreditation scheme encompassing road safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. It helps fleet operators to manage their occupational road risk and encourages road safety best practice amongst its members.

Zari’aat Masood, professional engagement officer at Brake, said: “It is exciting to be working with an organisation which shares the values of Brake so closely. This year’s conference provides an ideal opportunity to network and share best practice with industry professionals; we suggest booking early to secure your place at this unmissable event.”

Fleet operators and suppliers can attend the conference, which will take place at the St John's Hotel, Solihull, on Thursday, May 25.

John Hix, concession director at FORS, said: “Safety is at the heart of FORS and the Fleet Safety Conference is a great way for us to continue to spread that message and encourage operators to embrace best practice. Brake continues to do a fantastic job in championing these aims and we look forward to working together once again to encourage real change in the industry.”

Brake Professional members can book their place at the conference for £90+VAT, or £140+VAT for non-members.
