Brake is hosting a free webinar on driver fatigue.

As one of the most common causes of road crashes, fatigue causes drivers to be less likely to spot hazards, and less able to react in time to avoid a collision. Fatigue is particularly dangerous because it can affect anyone, regardless of how experienced a driver they are. At-work drivers can be particularly at risk, especially if they spend long hours driving, drive at night, or have irregular sleep schedules. Find out how to recognise your fatigue, and how you can reduce your risk.

This webinar will address:

  • Causes of driver fatigue
  • Why fatigue is an important concern in when it comes to fleet safety
  • Effective policies and procedures to reduce the risks
  • How technology can help you to address fatigue
  • The importance of driver health and wellbeing in preventing fatigue
  • Measures to help employers identify drivers who may be at risk of fatigue
  • Raising awareness of fatigue through education and communication programs

Representatives of any organisation in the world that employs people who drive for work will find this useful, including:

  • fleet managers
  • health and safety managers
  • transport managers
  • HR professionals

The webinar is also relevant for road safety NGOs, fleet suppliers, insurers, fleet risk management and driver training providers.

“Fatigue is an important road safety topic. It is a factor in a number of crashes, and anyone can be affected by it, yet many organisations don’t have policies and procedures in place to manage it, or don’t know how to address this risk with drivers. This webinar will provide information and advice on tackling the subject of driver tiredness, and is suitable for organisations operating fleets of any size and type, and I encourage anyone with responsibility for managing at-work drivers to attend.” – Caroline Perry, NZ Director of Brake.

This webinar is part of Global Fleet Champions, an initiative of Brake. Attendance is free.
