Brake is running a free webinar providing expert information and advice for employers and fleet and road safety professionals as part of their new webinar series ‘The Essentials of Fleet Safety’.
The webinar will be delivered as part of Global Fleet Champions, a not-for-profit global campaign to prevent crashes and reduce pollution caused by vehicles used for work purposes. Global Fleet Champions is free to join and shares training, tools, and guidance on global fleet safety best practice with its members, as well as networking and development opportunities.
Brake’s senior fleet officer Sarah Plumb said: “The Essentials of Fleet Safety webinar series is designed to provide attendees with expert advice on the fundamental elements of running a fleet safety programme, anywhere in the world.
“The series is not only relevant for employers and fleet professionals but is also beneficial to road safety NGOs, fleet suppliers, insurers and driver training providers. This particular webinar on driver behaviour highlights the pivotal role which both education and policy can play in road safety’.
The Essentials of Fleet Safety is a series of five, 60-minute webinars based on the five pillars of Global Fleet Champions: Drive behaviour, Incident analysis and intervention, Vehicle procurement and maintenance, Journey routing and modal choice, and Community outreach.
At the first webinar of the series, Essentials of Fleet Safety 1: Driver behaviour, sponsored by Allianz Insurance delegates can expect to learn how to :
- write and implement an effective fleet safety policy and driver handbook;
- plan and deliver an effective driver training and education programme; and
- access resources to support their work.
Allianz Insurance’s motor manager Mark Sherman said: “We are pleased to be partnering with Brake to share our expertise on the important topic of driver behaviour. We believe that effective driver training has a key role to play in ensuring that roads become safer.
“It’s essential that employers take the appropriate actions to safeguard their employees and other road users.
"Even minor road collisions can have a big impact on individuals and business, it is therefore important that a culture is created where both employer and employee understand the positive and negative impacts of driver behaviour and at all times drive carefully, considerately and when they are fit to do so.”
The webinar takes place on March 19. Attendance is free, and delegates can register by booking online.
