RSVP to Fleet Safety Survey

20 May 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

The road safety charity Brake is inviting all organisations and businesses with employees who drive for work to take part in its annual fleet safety survey.

Conducted by Brake Professional with the support of Licence Bureau, the survey will examine six key areas of road safety covered in the Brake Pledge that comprise:

  • 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.

Taking part in the fleet safety survey is free and anonymous and provides organisations with an opportunity to benchmark themselves against industry safety standards. All organisations who take part receive a free copy of the survey report and results.

Brake’s 2015 survey was completed by more than 200 organisations operating fleets of various sizes and types and with responsibility for thousands of drivers and vehicles.


Casualties driving to work

Official figures show that at least 10 people are killed each week and 100 seriously injured in crashes involving people driving for work.

Brake believes that taking part in the fleet safety survey is an ideal opportunity for organisations to identify ways to improve their occupational road risk management and take action to reduce the number of collisions on our roads involving at-work drivers.

The Pledge is also the theme of this year’s Road Safety Week which takes place 21-27 November 2016. Completing the fleet safety survey is a way for organisations to show their support for this year’s event and theme and Brake will be providing advice and resources for organisations and businesses that want to involve themselves further.

“Focusing on the six key areas of road safety as covered in the Brake Pledge allows us all to break down and act on each of the Pledge’s safety and sustainable elements,” explained Mike Reed, Marketing Director, Licence Bureau. ”The output from the Brake Fleet Safety survey will help deliver new thoughts and best practice on how best to reduce the number of incidents on our roads involving at-work drivers.”

The survey takes 15 minutes to complete and will close on Friday, 15 July 2016.
