Brake announces January date for Pledge2DriveSafely workshop
Launched in 2008, the Pledge2DriveSafely workshops train those with company driver experience to deliver Pledge2DriveSafely messages and campaigns to people who drive to work. The one-day events are delivered by top trainers, such as Tracey Scarr of Arval UK Ltd, with vast experience of delivering training to fleet managers.
As part of the workshop, participants will learn the extent of deaths caused by driver tiredness, drink driving, speeding, overtaking and many other key road safety topics relevant to fleet drivers as well as how to deliver presentations on road safety.
Once completed, attendees will receive access to a special interactive Pledge2DriveSafely website for use in the workplace, including hard hitting videos and a free guide to training drivers quickly and effectively in the Pledge2DriveSafely. They will also receive access to key Pledge2DriveSafely resources through an interactive website developed by Brake, thanks to funding from Balfour Beatty Plant & Fleet Services. This site contains a range of resources and e-learning tools to help deliver road safety messages to company drivers.
Mary Williams OBE, chief executive at Brake, said: 'This campaign has enormous potential to save lives. We would urge fleet managers to attend the workshop and to get started rolling out these fantastic resources to their drivers.'
The next workshop will be held on Wednesday 26 January 2011 in London. The workshop offers free training to those subscribed to Brake's Fleet Safety Forum, and is £70 + VAT for non-subscribers. The fee includes a year's free subscription to the Fleet Safety Forum (worth up to £155 +VAT).
