Brake has confirmed that its fleet seminar on developing a work-related road safety programme will be held on June 4.

The event, sponsored byTrakm8 and held in central Birmingham, will look at sharing best practice in introducing, maintaining and developing a comprehensive, risk-led, work-related road safety programme. It is aimed at fleet managers, health and safety managers and HR professionals.

Brake’s senior fleet officer Sarah Plumb said: “It is essential that organisations have a strong safety culture, supported and promoted from the top down, with relevant policies and protocols in place.

Delegates at this seminar will receive expert advice on how to develop a work-related road safety programme and I encourage all those with responsibility for at-work drivers to attend.”

It will be delivered as part of the Global Fleet Champions campaign; Brake’s brand new not-for-profit global campaign to prevent crashes and reduce pollution caused by vehicles used for work purposes.

Speakers will provide insight into:

  • Why organisations need to develop a comprehensive work-related road safety programme, and how to develop their programme.
  • Employer responsibilities, including driving licence and insurance checks.
  • How to use data to evaluate road risk and inform an at-work road safety programme.

Trakm8’s executive chairman John Watkins said: “All employers have a duty of care to employees who drive for work purposes. An at-work road safety programme should be an essential part of any organisation’s policies and procedures.

"Telematics and vehicle cameras can undoubtedly play a role in providing the data you need to reduce road risk and keep your colleagues safe.”
