Brake, the road safety charity, has published an essential guidance report to help fleet managers and HR professionals ensure their drivers are fit for the road.
The new report, written in collaboration with Teletrac Navman, focuses on the impact of poor health on an employee’s ability to drive.
Zari’aat Masood, professional engagement officer at Brake, said: “Ensuring the safety of your fleet goes further than vehicle maintenance: the person behind the wheel also needs to be fit for the road. This crucial guidance report highlights positive steps companies can make to guarantee at-work drivers are safe behind the wheel.”
By examining eyesight, stress, and fatigue, the guidance report is designed to aid fleet managers in making drivers aware of the long term effects of poor health and the risk they can pose to themselves, the company and other road users.
The resource is available free of charge to all Brake Professional members through its website. Non-members can order it online from the Brake shop.
