Fleet Safety Forum launches campaign to prevent whiplash
The Fleet Safety Forum, an initiative coordinated by Brake, is urging companies to tackle the issue of ill-fitting head restraints.
The charity’s Move Up campaign is calling on fleet safety managers to get expert advice on saving their employees’ necks by attending a workshop on preventing whiplash and head injuries.
Research released by Brake and Direct Line Car Insurance in August 2009 showed that two out of three drivers never or rarely check their head restraints.
The workshop, at Thatcham, Berkshire on 2 December, will explain the latest technologies in head restraint design and outline the importance of promoting correct head restraint practice among employees.
