This seminar will look at the specific barriers that may be encountered by small businesses trying to improve their fleet safety, and give an overview of some of the tools and methods that can be used to overcome these barriers, including the Brake Pledge programme.

Best practice case studies will be presented by a small business that has successfully implemented the Pledge, and by a large fleet operator that has successfully partnered with a small business to promote road safety.
