Brake, the road safety charity, with the support of vehicle leasing and fleet management company Arval, announces a series of nationwide training courses in 2018 to help companies improve the safety of their at-work drivers.
Brake’s Pledge training provides employers with the tools to raise awareness among at-work drivers on six key areas of road safety. This essential 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. Tracey is passionate about road safety and will share her experiences of using Brake’s Pledge to successfully engage Arval staff and customers.
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 six core principles of safe driving:
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

Ross Moorlock, business development director at Brake, says: “The Pledge provides employers with the training and tools to engage their staff with essential road safety messages. The day-long course can be adapted to suit organisations of all sizes and fleet types and at any stage of their road risk management journey. We are delighted to continue working with Arval to deliver these essential workshops.”
Tracey Fuller, customer engagement manager at Arval, says: “Arval is a long standing supporter of the Pledge because we know first-hand that it can help change the safety culture of your business. The Pledge toolkit is very flexible and the resources available can easily be adapted for any size of fleet and driver demographic. The six core messages are simple yet extremely impactful and truly have the potential to reach the hearts and minds of all drivers in such a way that they understand how they can improve their safety whilst they drive. In my opinion, there is a place for the Pledge in every fleet safety programme.”
