Brake has confirmed that its fleet seminar on developing a work-related road safety programme will be held on June 4.
The event, sponsored by Trakm8 and held in central Birmingham, will look at sharing best practice in introducing, maintaining and developing a comprehensive, risk-led, work-related road safety programme. It is aimed at fleet managers, health and safety managers and HR professionals.
Brake’s senior fleet officer Sarah Plumb said: “It is essential that organisations have a strong safety culture, supported and promoted from the top down, with relevant policies and protocols in place.
Delegates at this seminar will receive expert advice on how to develop a work-related road safety programme and I encourage all those with responsibility for at-work drivers to attend.”
It will be delivered as part of the Global Fleet Champions campaign; Brake’s brand new not-for-profit global campaign to prevent crashes and reduce pollution caused by vehicles used for work purposes.
Speakers will provide insight into:
- Why organisations need to develop a comprehensive work-related road safety programme, and how to develop their programme.
- Employer responsibilities, including driving licence and insurance checks.
- How to use data to evaluate road risk and inform an at-work road safety programme.
Trakm8’s executive chairman John Watkins said: “All employers have a duty of care to employees who drive for work purposes. An at-work road safety programme should be an essential part of any organisation’s policies and procedures.
“Telematics and vehicle cameras can undoubtedly play a role in providing the data you need to reduce road risk and keep your colleagues safe.”
