04 Dec Fleet Source raises awareness for Road Safety Week
Fleet Source participated in raising awareness for Brake’s Road Safety Week, commencing from the 20th-26th November.
Brake is a road safety charity that works to prevent road death and injury, make streets and communities safer and supports the victims of road crashes. As part of their annual Road Safety Week, Brake aims to inspire thousands of schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the Week and beyond. It also provides a focal point for professionals working in road safety to boost awareness and engagement in their work.
As a training provider that focuses on safety in a number of training courses delivered to commercial drivers, Fleet Source aims to raise awareness of Road Safety Week to demonstrate to drivers how they can be more aware of their driving behaviors and vehicles to prevent and reduce risks of incidents.
A Fleet Source, free Toolbox Talk was sent out every day by email to over 16,000 people, focused around safety in driving for work and could be applied to any driver in any transport fleet.
The TBT’s included information on using mobile phones whilst driving, driving in snow and ice, driving in wet conditions, safe speed, tailgating, and routing and journey planning.
We also held a ‘Bake for Brake’ sale and had a charity collection at every training course we ran at our Barking Training Centre, which in total raised over £50.
We’re looking forward to participating again next year!
