Webinar - Eliminating driver distractions.

4 September 2019

The Eliminating driver distractions  Global Fleet Champions' webinar will take place on the 10th October 2019 - 2pm-3pm GMT+1.

Driving requires the full attention of the driver. Hazards can arise at any time, and vehicles can travel a considerable distance in the short amount of time it takes a driver to notice and react to a danger. A moment’s distraction can have fatal consequences. Anything that draws the driver’s attention away from the road – through sight, sound, thought or physical action – is a distraction. Preventing driver distraction is one of the most important things that fleet managers can do to make their workforce safer.

Our academic and practitioner speakers will discuss:

  • why distraction is an important road safety issue, and why drivers get distracted
  • the addictiveness and distractions of different technologies
  • policies to help reduce driver distraction
  • measures to help employers identify drivers who may be at risk of being distracted
  • measures to raise awareness of distraction through education and communication programme

Who should attend?

  • Representatives of any organisation that employs people who drive for work, including:
  • fleet managers
  • health and safety managers
  • transport managers
  • HR professionals

The webinar is also relevant for road safety NGOs, fleet suppliers, insurers, fleet risk management and driver training providers.
