Brake to give advice on protecting vulnerable road users in free webinar
Brake is running a free webinar that provides expert information and advice on protecting vulnerable road users.
Taking place on 16 July 2019 and aimed at employers and fleet and road safety professionals, the Protecting Vulnerable Users webinar will discuss:
- How to raise awareness among employees about the dangers that vulnerable road users face and the measures that can be introduced to protect them;
- The latest safety systems available and how they can be used to help prevent crashes and mitigate the outcomes of crashes; and
- How engaging with local communities and lobbying local and national governments can bring about road safety change.
Sarah Plumb, senior fleet officer at Brake, said: “Cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable groups on the roads. In the event of a crash, they will often be exposed to the full force of the impact and will face a disproportionately high risk of death or serious injury. Fleet managers need to ensure measures are in place to protect vulnerable road users and this webinar will provide essential guidance.”
The webinar is being delivered as part of the Global Fleet Champions global campaign that launched this spring to prevent crashes and reduce pollution caused by vehicles used for work purposes.
Attendance at the webinar is free, and you can register by booking online.
