GreenRoad Technologies and Brake fly the flag for safer, smarter, driving
The workshop, “Smart solutions for greener, safer drivers”, takes place on Thursday September 29 in central Birmingham.
Leading academics and suppliers to the fleet industry will discuss using in-vehicle technology and driver training to improve driver behaviour and lower crash rates, emissions and costs.
Dr Will Murray, of Interactive Driving Systems, will advise on how to implement driver training initiatives successfully and Michael Gwilt of GreenRoad will discuss the latest innovations in driver training techniques and in-vehicle technology. Speed control, fuel efficiency, and achieving board level support for initiatives, will be discussed, along with the best ways to achieve driver buy-in to initiatives.
Mark Moore of Bunzl will provide a best practice case study on how Bunzl use in-vehicle technologies to run a targeted training programme for their drivers. As a result of the programme, Bunzl have seen a significant reduction in their crash rate and insurance premium, as well as reduced fuel usage and vehicle maintenance costs. The scheme is also popular with their drivers.
Caroline Perry, Development director at Brake, said: ‘This workshop provides a valuable insight into improving your fleet’s safety, efficiency, and finances through easy to implement initiatives. I would urge all fleet professionals with an interest in driver training and driver behaviour to attend.’
