The Fleet Safety Forum is a not for profit initiative by Brake, the road safety charity. The Fleet Safety Forum's aim is to help you prevent crashes involving at-work drivers by providing you with up to date guidance and tools to tackle road risk within your company (or companies you work with). The Fleet Safety Forum was established in 1995, making it one of the first and most established organisations working in this life-saving field, with a wealth of expertise.
It is estimated that a third or more road deaths involve a vehicle being driven for work. Globally, this means the Fleet Safety Forum and its subscribers are working to prevent about 400,000 deaths every year - more than 1,000 deaths every day. By prioritising road safety, companies can also lower their costs (through reductions in insurance premiums, reductions in the cost of vehicle repairs and lost employee time following crashes, and reduced fuel costs) and improve their reputations.
Subscription to Fleet Safety Forum is based on a low annual fee ranging from £155 to just £90 for charities (and is free if you are based in a country on the United Nations' Least Developed Countries list). Click the Join online now button for a full list of prices.
If more than one person from the same organisation wishes to subscribe, we offer discounted corporate rates. For details please call Roz on +44 (0)1484 559909.

Our acclaimed Fleet Safety Forum manager reports
The Fleet Safety Forum has written more than 50 reports for fleet managers on how to tackle road risk, on topics ranging from driver eyesight to vehicle maintenance systems, to recording and analysis of crash data. All these reports are downloadable through this site. Our reports address the need for managers to consider three areas - the journey, the driver, and the vehicle - in the context of risk assessment relating to safety and to the environment.
'Showcase' is our web portfolio of case studies of companies that have significantly reduced their road risk through a variety of management methods. Companies featured include many that have won awards in our annual Fleet Safety Forum Awards programme.
Road Safety Research Library (RSRL)
Brake's online Road Safety Research Library (RSRL) databases key pieces of research by road safety academics around the globe. If you want to know the latest research on the dangers of mobile phones when driving, or on any other key road safety topic, you can look it up on our online RSRL.
Pledge campaign toolkit
The Pledge is Brake's flagship campaign to stop dangerous driving. It enables at-work drivers to make a professional promise to comply with the most critical safety rules. The Pledge campaign tool kit on this site includes video clips to presentations, games and quizzes - ideal for driver induction programmes or on-going educational and remedial programmes. In addition, you can obtain promotional Pledge materials such as posters, stickers and leaflets, through the Brake shop. These can be branded with your company name if you require.
