RISK: Get fleet safety tips with Brake
Road safety charity Brake are urging fleet managers to sign up to their one-day conference on advanced road risk management called ‘Going the extra mile’.
The FMG-sponsored event, which takes place on December 9 in London, will showcase best practice and offer delegates an opportunity to learn from the fleet safety successes of others.
Experienced practitioners and leading experts will give an insight into the foundations of an effective road risk management strategy, helping fleet professionals build policies and introduce successful measures.
Speakers at the event include Andy Price, Practice Leader, Europe Motor Fleet for Zurich Risk Engineering, Dr Jim Golby, of Applied Driving, and Mick Heduan, Driver Training Programme Manager at Crossrail.
Roz Cumming, Professional Engagement Manager at Brake, said: “Many fleets have made fantastic progress in recent years by addressing their road risk.
“Their good work continues to make roads safer not only for their employees but for all road users.
“At the same time they’re saving huge amounts of money.
“Brake events provide an excellent platform for sharing knowledge and experience to help encourage more good practice of this sort.
“Whether you’re just starting out, or already taking steps to manage occupational road safety, this event is an excellent opportunity to find ways of continuing to improve your results by taking your fleet safety programme to the next level.”
Road crashes account for 39% of work-related deaths in the European Union, costing UK employers an estimated £2.7billion a year.
Tickets to the conference cost £90, plus VAT, for Brake subscribers and £136, plus VAT, for non-subscribers.
