New guide to monitoring driver behaviour

Road Safety Charity publishes new report for HR/fleet managers

It isn’t an easy job managing truck drivers, but a new guide available from a respected road safety organisation might help.

Brake, the UK Road Safety Charity, has published an essential guidance report for fleet managers and HR professionals.

The report was created in collaboration with Teletrac Navman.

It aims to help fleet managers reduce their road risk through encouraging positive mental attitudes and monitoring driver behaviour.

The report focuses on the importance of employers being aware of driver attitudes and highlights the need for organisations to develop a culture that values and prioritises people and their welfare.

“Poor attitudes and a negative state of mind can have a detrimental effect on driver safety.” – Sarah Plumb, senior fleet officer at Brake.

“Whilst awareness and open discussion about such issues are increasing, more can and should be done to ensure the safety of drivers and other road users.

“Organisations have a responsibility to ensure their drivers are both physically and mentally fit to drive and effective holistic approaches need to be introduced to achieve this.”

The publication is available to purchase here.
