Brake puts spotlight on fleet vehicle maintenance & employer responsibilities

Taking place this summer, the seminar will cover “Maintenance and mechanics: how safe are your vehicles and who's checking them?”

The event will see experienced fleet and road safety practitioners look at legal requirements for maintenance and mechanics and employer responsibilities, including monitoring driver vehicle checks and reporting defects.

Brake’s seminar, sponsored by IRTE (Institute of Road Transport Engineers), will also address educating drivers on the importance of good vehicle maintenance and ensuring they carry out regular vehicle checks. Attendees will also learn from an organisation that has successfully implemented an effective maintenance policy and achieved driver buy-in to the policy.

The seminar will take place in London from 12.30pm to 4pm on Wednesday 25th June 2014 and costs £70 for Brake Professional subscribers and £120 for non-subscribers.

Ian Chisholm, head of operations and communications at IRTE, said: ‘Understanding and implementing proper maintenance procedures is vital for the safety of vehicles on the UK's roads, and this event will no doubt be helpful to transport managers who want to ensure their fleets are legally compliant.’
