The move marks the first time that Brake's Pledge training, sponsored by ARI Fleet UK, will be run as a series of online webinars, offering practical tools and resources on fleet road risk management.
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 – a within speed limits
- Sober – a free from alcohol or drugs
- Sharp – a not tired, ill or with poor eyesight
- Silent – a phone off and out of reach
- Secure – a belted up in a safe vehicle
- Sustainable – a 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:
- Thursday 19th June 2014
- Wednesday 17th September 2014
- Tuesday 2nd December 2014
The first course is free to all to attend.
