A new website has been launched to give fleet and road safety professionals tools and advice to support the vital work they do promoting road safety and helping to prevent road deaths and injuries.
Brake, the road safety charity, has created Brake Professional to give easy access to events, research, tools and campaigns to help road safety professionals, fleet managers and others to implement successful road safety activities and campaigns.
The website, www.brakepro.org, is aimed at a range of professionals including road safety practitioners, employers of at-work drivers, driver trainers, road and vehicle engineers, emergency and health workers, road safety academics and campaigners.
Brake Professional replaces Brake's former Road Safety Forum and Fleet Safety Forum websites, combining all the resources both practitioners need into one place. Current subscribers will continue to receive their current benefits, but through the new site.
Resources subscribers can access through the site include:
To celebrate the launch, Brake is offering a special discounted rate for subscribing. For just £50 + VAT, the first 50 people who email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting discount code ‘bp-sub'- will receive a 12 month subscription giving them access to all these tools. The standard rate for an annual subscription to Brake is £155 + VAT.

Katie Shephard, director at Brake, said: "Nearly a third of journeys on our roads are made by at-work drivers, who are more likely to be in a crash than people driving in their own time. By working closely with fleet and road safety professionals we provide them with the correct resources they need to improve road safety. This new website helps them achieve this better than ever before. If you aren't already a subscriber I urge you to sign up now and start using these resources to support your vital work."
