Brake to run series of online webinars on fleet safety
Sponsored by ARI Fleet UK, the Brake Pledge training course offers practical tools and resources to enable participants to pass on safe driving messages to people who drive for work. Attendees will also hear from a company that has successfully embedded the Pledge within their business; helping them to improve road safety while maintaining high levels of productivity.
The webinars are delivered by an experienced, qualified trainer from Brake. Attendees will learn how to run discussion-based workshops with their drivers on six core principles of safe driving:
- Slow – within speed limits
- Sober – free from alcohol or drugs
- Sharp – not tired, ill or with poor eyesight
- Silent – phone off and out of reach
- Secure – belted up in a safe vehicle
- Sustainable – only when you have to
Attendees will be provided with access to interactive learning materials through Brake Professional’s website www.brakepro.org. These tools are designed to be used within the workplace to support internal road risk management policies and procedures.
The course is free to all to attend.
Ellie Pearson, senior professional engagement officer at Brake, said: ‘People who drive for work are an especially high-risk group on our roads and therefore it is incredibly important that we all make sure they are safe. We are delighted that our Pledge training is now being run through online webinars – making it even easier for drivers from all over the world to attend from the comfort of their own office. I would encourage any business to get involved with these courses, which are free to everyone.’
