Brake to run free webinar on vehicle maintenance

Brake will run the free webinar, ‘Maintenance and mechanics – how safe are your vehicles?’, featuring talks from fleet professionals on November 8.

The road safety charity is running a free webinar for fleet and road safety professionals discussing the importance of ensuring vehicles being driven for work, whether company or employee-owned, are safe on the roads.

The webinar, Maintenance and mechanics – how safe are your vehicles?, will be delivered by Brake Professional and sponsored by Autoglass.

Autoglass’ national sales manager Jeremy Rochfort said: "At Autoglass we take safety on the road extremely seriously, both for our technicians and our customers.

"Brake is a fantastic organisation who we have been working with for a number of years and this webinar provides us with a great opportunity to engage the fleet community on one of the most pressing issues for vehicle safety – ADAS calibration.

"I encourage fleet decision makers to sign up and learn more about how to manage these new active safety systems to ensure the safety of their drivers.”

The webinar will outline:

  1.  The consequences of non-compliance with vehicle standards
  2.  How to educate and train drivers to complete routine vehicle checks
  3.  The importance of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) calibration
  4.  How to verify the standards of technicians working on your vehicles.

Leading professionals from the fleet industry will discuss areas such as how to ensure technical competence when choosing a bodyshop, essential maintenance systems and procedures for roadworthiness and compliance, and the use of telematics data to assess vehicle health and anticipate maintenance needs.

The webinar takes place on November 8 2018 at 2pm-3.30pm. Attendance is free, and you can register by booking online.

Brake’s senior fleet officer Sarah Plumb said: “Brake are delighted to be working with Autoglass to deliver this essential webinar.

"Regular checking and servicing, particularly of safety-critical components can not only eliminate the need for expensive repairs and costly insurance claims but can save lives.”
