The latest free fleet webinar from Brake, the road safety charity’s Global Fleet Champions initiative, will focus on vehicle procurement and maintenance. Fleet operators and anyone with an interest in fleet safety is encouraged to attend.
Vehicle procurement and maintenance – Thursday 25 November, 2pm – 3pm NZDT
The webinar is part of a series run through Global Fleet Champions, which shares best practice information and resources for addressing road risk.
Attendance at the webinar is free, and it is open to health and safety staff, fleet managers, senior management staff, and anyone else with responsibility for at-work drivers at their organisation or an interest in fleet safety.
Safe vehicles are essential to prevent crashes from happening and reduce the risk of death or serious injury if a crash does occur. Knowing what to look out for when buying new vehicles can help fleets minimise crash risk. Regular inspection and maintenance also play a vital role in keeping your vehicles safe for the road.
This webinar will discuss:
- effective policies and procedures for procurement and maintenance
- the importance of vehicle standards and routine vehicle checks
- vehicle safety technologies that can prevent crashes and reduce risk of death and injury.

Caroline Perry, Brake’s NZ director, said: “Unsafe and unmaintained vehicles present a serious risk to organisations and their at-work drivers. Effective vehicle procurement and maintenance should be part of any fleet safety policy and procedures and it’s essential that managers understand the importance of procuring safe vehicles, and of regular maintenance and servicing. This webinar will look at the risks, and measures organisations can put in place to address them.”
