Brake, the road safety charity, is running a free online training course next month – to help companies improve the safety of their drivers when out on the road and it is based on six core principles of safe driving.
Brake’s Pledge training, sponsored by ARI Fleet UK, is being run as a series of online webinars this year to give managers and driver trainers the training and tools they need to make sure at-work drivers and other road users are safe.
In Great Britain, at least 10 people are killed each week and 100 seriously injured in crashes involving people driving for work. Brake’s Pledge training aims to combat this carnage by appealing to people who drive for work to follow six simple steps to protect themselves and other road users.
This training course offers practical tools and resources to enable participants to pass on effective and engaging safe driving messages to people who drive for work. Attendees will also hear from a company that has successfully embedded the Pledge within their business; helping them to improve road safety while maintaining high levels of productivity.
The webinars are delivered by an experienced, qualified trainer from Brake. Attendees will learn how to run discussion based workshops with their drivers on six core principles of safe driving:
- 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 will be provided with access to interactive learning materials through Brake Professional’s website www.brakepro.org. These tools are designed to be used within the workplace to support internal road risk management policies and procedures.
Forthcoming Pledge webinars:
- Tuesday 15 September 2015
- Thursday 26 November 2015
The course is free to all to attend.
