Road safety charity Brake held a road safety webinar on Tuesday 16th September in a bid to help companies increase driver safety on the road. The road safety webinar, which was hosted online, saw Brake’s Pledge training offered online for the first time, and fleets across the UK were encouraged to sign up for the free training. The course, aimed at driver trainers and managers, offered practical tools and training to enable participants to encourage safe driving in their workplace.
The road safety webinar, run as a series of online webinars by a qualified trainer from Brake, covered six principles of safe driving:
- Sober – free from drugs and alcohol
- Slow – within speed limits
- Secure – wearing a seat belt and in a safe vehicle
- Silent – mobile phone off and out of reach
- Sharp – Not ill, tired or with poor eyesight
- Sustainable – only when you have to
Interactive learning materials were available to all participants and another Pledge webinar is scheduled for Tuesday 2nd December 2014.
Reducing road traffic accidents
Road safety charities such as Brake run campaigns to reduce road traffic accidents across the UK, and these are usually very effective. No matter how safe our roads are, accidents still have the potential to happen, and if you are involved in an accident which was someone else’s fault, did you know you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries? Careless drivers speeding or using their mobile phone at the wheel are a major cause of accidents, and if you have been involved in a collision with a distracted driver, you usually have three years in which to make a claim for compensation.
