Net news – Brake launches new fleet website

Road safety charity Brake has launched a new website aimed at the fleet market.

The organisation says the website,, provides fleets with a one-stop-shop for safety advice, information and resources.

Sponsored by Balfour Beatty Plant & Fleet Services, the website can be accessed by subscribers to Brake’s Fleet Safety Forum, a not-for-profit service aimed at helping companies improve their management of road risk.

The new website includes guidance reports on topics such as eco driving, driver tiredness, and duty of care issues. Information on fleet events, best-practice fleet case studies, news bulletins, and a range of e-learning tools and other resources for drivers can also be found on the site.

Roz Cumming, fleet safety forum manager at Brake, says: “The new site gives fleets a valuable range of information and resources, all in one place, to help them improve safety and save lives. We urge fleets to join our community of safety conscious organisations, and sign up today.”

A subscription to the site costs £115 +VAT a year.
