Scottish fleets urged to address safety through Fleet Safety Forum training course
The event takes place on 22nd May 2013 in Edinburgh and forms part of the work by the Fleet Safety Forum, a not-for-profit-initiative by Brake, and Colas Ltd to improve the safety of at-work drivers and other road users in the South West through Brake's Pledge campaign.
The Pledge course offers training and practical tools to enable participants to pass on effective and engaging safe driving messages to people who drive for work.
The training course is delivered by an experienced, qualified trainer. Course attendees are shown how to run discussion-based workshops on six core principles of safe driving, which ask people to pledge to drive:
- 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 are provided with access to interactive learning materials through Brake's Fleet Safety Forum website www.fleetsafetyforum.orgto use within their workplace to support their internal road risk management policies and procedures.
The course costs £75+VAT and includes a free subscription for one year to Brake's Fleet Safety Forum (normally £155+VAT), dedicated to helping fleets improve their road safety.
