Brake has published a guidance report for fleet decision makers dealing with young drivers, in collaboration with Fleetmaster.
‘Managing young at-work drivers’ outlines the main reasons why young drivers (17-24) are at higher risk of being involved in a crash and recommends measures that organisations can put in place to reduce that risk.
The report is one of a series, produced by Brake, which aim to help fleet managers reduce their road risk.
“Driving for work is associated with higher risk for drivers of any age but this risk increases significantly for those aged 17-24 years old. Employers need to be actively engaging with their young drivers and implementing robust measures to help reduce their risk of being involved in a crash. This guidance report is a valuable resource for any professionals managing young drivers,” said Sarah Plumb, senior fleet officer at Brake.
Advice laid out in the report focuses on why implementing key measures such as training in basic vehicle maintenance and monitoring of driver behaviour is crucial in every organisation.
The new resource is available free of charge to all Brake Professional members through.
Non-members can order the resources from the Brake shop, or join Brake Professional to access these and other resources.
