(PRWeb UK) November 25, 2010
A WEBINAR presented by RAC Fleet Risk Management on Monday November 29, 2010 will provide fleet decision-makers with valuable advice on how to prepare for winter and reduce risks for their drivers in bad weather.
The programme can be viewed by anyone with a computer and internet connection and will feature senior RAC risk management professionals. Dave Abbott spent 30 years in the police force before transferring his skills to the driver training industry. He now provides risk management and driver training services for RAC. Steve Whitmarsh heads up the Fleet and Commercial Services team at RAC and has responsibility for more than 1.5 million vehicles.
Marcus Noble, head of RAC Risk Management said, “Fleet operators will get a lot out of this hour-long audience with two of the most experienced risk experts in the fleet business. Every year we hear stories of drivers being caught out by bad weather conditions and accident figures go up during the winter months. But good preparation and increased awareness can reduce the likelihood of an accident considerably.”
During the 60-minute webinar, the presentations and discussion will cover the following vitally important areas of winter driving preparation:
- Examining the culture in your company and its attitude to driving for work in adverse conditions.
- Preparing your business for the effects of bad weather on driving.
- Preparing your drivers for wintry conditions with the emphasis on how to avoid getting into difficulties.
- Educating your drivers on journey planning, vehicle preparation and how to read the road conditions.
The RAC Fleet Risk Management webinar lasts from 3pm to 4pm on Monday November 29. To join the audience and maybe submit your own typed comments and questions, register now at: http://www.racfleetriskmanagement.com
