SAFE: Advice is aimed at fleets
Road safety charity Brake are helping fleet operators develop and implement sustainable travel plans with a new guidance report.
The best practice report includes expert advice delivered at a recent Brake webinar on ‘Sustainable travel plans: reducing cost and risk’.
Produced as part of Brake’s campaign to help organisations save lives, money and the environment by improving fleet safety, it is sponsored by MiX Telematics.
The guidance explains how encouraging sustainable travel can improve employee health and wellbeing, benefit the environment and save the organisation money.
Roz Cumming, Professional Engagement Manager at Brake, said: “Encouraging sustainable travel is a no-brainer for companies; the benefits of safer roads, a cleaner environment and reduced costs to businesses present a highly persuasive case.
“This report gives practical guidance on what to consider when implementing a sustainable travel plan, and sets out the benefits.”
Up to one in three road crashes in Britain involves people who drive for work, while vehicle crashes accounted for 35% of worker deaths in Australia in 2010/11.
Steve Coffin, Marketing and Operations Director at MiX Telematics, added: “This best practice report provides companies with great insight on how to become more sustainable.
“Optimising fleet utilisation and reducing vehicle mileage can help fleet operators to overcome the main challenges facing their businesses: increasing fuel costs, environmental regulation and the need to improve safety.”
The report is available for free to Fleet Safety Forum subscribers, or can be purchased for £5 by non-subscribers.
As a special offer, the first 25 non-subscribers to request the report will get a copy for free.
