Brake teams up with Arval to deliver first Pledge training course of the year

Brake teams up with Arval to deliver first Pledge training course of the year

Road safety charity Brake, with the support of vehicle leasing and fleet management company Arval, will deliver its first Pledge training course of 2017 on Tuesday, 14 March, in London.  

Official figures show that at least 10 people are killed each week and 100 seriously injured in crashes involving people driving for work, however, said Brake, that was likely to be a substantial underestimate as journey purpose was not always recorded by the police at crash scenes.

Brake’s Pledge training aims to tackle what it called “the worrying figure” by providing employers with the tools to educate at-work drivers on six key areas of road safety.  

The training course offers practical tools and resources on effectively engaging staff and managing road risk.  

The courses will be delivered by experienced trainer and long-standing Brake supporter Tracey Fuller, from Arval.  

Course attendees will also receive access to Brake’s toolkit of Pledge resources, which includes advice for managers on delivering and implementing different areas of the Pledge, and also educational tools such as videos and posters on the six Pledge points:

·         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

Additional Pledge courses will take place on Wednesday, 10 May in Birmingham, Wednesday, 5 July in Manchester, Tuesday, 19 September in Edinburgh, Tuesday, 10 October in Swindon and Tuesday, 5 December in Birmingham.  

The courses are free to attend for Brake Professional members, and cost £90 + VAT for non-members. All non-members who attend will receive one year’s free Brake Professional membership.
