Fleet operators are being invited to a free networking seminar this month that will look at the risks of vehicle terrorism and the measures that firms can put in place to keep drivers safe.
The event, which is being run by training and auditing firm Fleet Source on Wednesday 28 February at the Holiday Inn, Crick, will cover the training and support available to help fleet managers and drivers understand the risks of terrorism, what they can do to help minimise risk within their organisation and the actions to take in the event of an incident or suspicious activity.
This follows recent research carried out by Fleet Source that revealed 87% of commercial drivers and operators see terrorism as a potential threat and 74% of drivers are not trained to protect themselves or their vehicle against the risk of a terror attack.
Nick Caesari, managing director, Fleet Source, said: “With over a third of our work force being from a military and policing background, many having extensive counter-terrorism experience, we believe we are well positioned to help inform fleet operators in taking the necessary steps to ensure they are doing everything possible to prevent their vehicles from being hijacked or stolen and used as a weapon in an attack. Safety and helping protect people from harm is our day job, and offering this free seminar to our profession is a natural extension of what Fleet Source provides.”
