A free webinar on what approaches employers and fleet professionals can take to help protect vulnerable road users is being held by road safety charity Brake.
It will be held on 16 July, and discuss subjects including how to raise awareness among employees about the dangers vulnerable road users face and how to protect them.
Also discussed will be how the latest safety systems can be used to prevent and mitigate the outcome of crashes, and how engaging with local communities and lobbying local and national governments can bring about road safety change.
Attendance can be booked via Brake's Global Fleet Champions website.
Brake senior fleet officer Sarah Plumb said: "Cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable groups on the roads.
"In the event of a crash, they will often be exposed to the full force of the impact and will face a disproportionately high risk of death or serious injury.
"Fleet managers need to ensure measures are in place to protect vulnerable road users and this webinar will provide essential guidance."
