Brake, the road safety charity, is running a free event for fleet and road safety professionals on the benefits of taking part in UK Road Safety Week, and providing advice on how to get involved.
Road Safety Week is coordinated annually by Brake as a community event involving thousands of companies, schools, public sector organisations, and community groups. The theme for Road Safety Week 2016 (21-27 November) is the Brake Pledge, which asks people to do six simple things to save lives on the UK’s roads.
Brake’s online webinar, Taking part in UK Road Safety Week 2016, is an opportunity to hear from companies that took part in Road Safety Week 2015, and will provide employers with inspiration and advice on running successful activities and communication campaigns, both internally and as community events. The webinar takes place 10am – 11.30am on Tuesday 20 September. For more information, and to book, visit www.brakepro.org.
Ellie Pearson, of Brake, said: “Road Safety Week provides companies with a really great opportunity to engage their staff, suppliers, and customers with vital road safety messages, as well as the opportunity to run awareness raising campaigns in their local communities. Road Safety Week is free to take part in, and we provide all organisations who get involved with ideas, resources, and support, to help make their activities, whether internal or external, as successful as possible. I’d encourage anyone interested in getting involved in this year’s Road Safety Week to sign up for our free webinar to find out more about the many benefits of taking part.”
