RED joins Driving for Better Business programme to help make roads safer
14 September, 2023
RED Corporate Driver Training has joined the Government’s Driving for Better Business Campaign to drive up road safety standards in the UK.
And the very first fruits of the partnership will be revealed at the Fleet and Mobility Live Show in October where visitors can take part in the innovative DfBB/RED Brake Distance Challenge, designed to get fleet and risk managers really thinking about the impact the actions of drivers have behind the wheel.
Seb Goldin, CEO at RED Corporate Driver Training, said: “We’re delighted to partner with DfBB and help expand on the excellent work they do in increasing safety standards on our roads for all users.
“DfBB’s four key areas of focus very much align with how our training business operates, focusing on fitness to drive, compliance, leadership and business benefits, and safe vehicles.
“It also coincides with the launch of our Safety First risk management programme platform, offering fleets an easy to use cloud-based support system to manage drivers, vehicles and the grey fleet.”
During Fleet and Mobility Live, taking place at the NEC from October 3-4, visitors can take part in the DfBB/RED Corporate Driver Training Brake Distance Challenge which challenges contestants to estimate the impact of a range of situations and whether those would have contributed to a crash in selected scenarios.
Driving for Better Business is a National Highways programme to help employers in both the private and public sectors reduce work-related road risk, control the associated costs and improve compliance with current legislation and guidance.
Mark Cartwright from Driving for Better Business said: “We are delighted to be partnering with RED Corporate Driver Training supporting those organisations with employees who drive for work.
“It is fantastic to work alongside like-minded partners to improve safety and reduce risk for those who drive on our road network, and to help everyone in organisations understand their responsibilities to ensure everyone gets home safe and well.”
