Free Brake membership for SME’s

Brake, the road safety charity is offering 250 SMEs free membership to its acclaimed Brake Professional membership scheme for fleet professionals. Brake Professional is a membership scheme for any organisation with at-work drivers; members receive practical guidance and tools to support them in managing their occupational road risk.

Courtesy of funding provided by Bibby Line Group, Brake is giving away free Brake Professional membership to the first 250 SMEs who apply. 

Brake created Brake Professional to help fleet operators implement successful road safety initiatives. Brake Professional supports managers of at-work drivers in effectively managing road risk in their organisation by providing training, tools, and guidance.

Members can access:

  • Guidance reports on a wide range of fleet safety topics, containing research and best practice advice;
  • Advice sheets to give to drivers providing key road safety advice;
  • Posters on a range of topics to display in workplaces;
  • Infographics to share via social media, staff communications and intranets;
  • Reports on Brake’s surveys with fleet operators on road risk management practices;
  • Reports on Brake’s surveys with drivers on their attitudes and behaviour towards road safety.

Additionally, members receive free and discounted attendance at Brake’s annual programme of fleet safety conferences, seminars and webinars, and training courses. Members also have free access to the Brake Pledge; a training campaign to help fleet managers achieve positive behavioural change among at-work drivers. Brake provides free online training on delivering the Pledge, and members receive a toolkit of accompanying resources to help them deliver the key Pledge messages to their drivers.

SMEs can claim their free Brake Professional membership by emailing professional@brake.org.uk or to find out more visit www.brakepro.org.

Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said, ‘Almost a third of fatal road crashes in Britain involve someone driving for work, which is why Brake’s work with fleet operators is so important. Through Brake Professional we provide fleet operators with access to tools, training, and resources to help make their drivers as safe as possible, and I’d urge any organisation with at-work drivers to join today and access our life-saving resources.’
