Organisations urged to wake up to driver fatigue
Working in partnership with an energy supplement provider, Brake, the road safety charity, has launched a campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of driving while tired.
Brake says that a commercial vehicle is involved in four of every 10 road crashes in which fatigue is a factor. To combat this, Brake and Quick Energy are encouraging organisations to hold a ‘Wake Up For Work Day’.
Ideas they are putting forward to raise awareness include wearing pyjamas to work, having an extra long coffee break or a work-at-home ‘duvet day’.
The free campaign resource pack includes a poster and leaflet covering issues relating to driver fatigue. For more information contact Brake on 01484 550054 or: firstname.lastname@example.org
