The Australasian Fleet Management Association organises a Professional Development Forum program for Victoria throughout 2018. This event kicks off with lunch and follows with discussions on topics chosen by the Chapter Committee based on members needs. The PDF’s are an ideal way of staying abreast of topical issues, networking with fellow fleet managers, connecting with potential clients, entertaining and reaffirming existing clients or taking the first step in discovering what it is like to be an AfMA Member. We encourage you to contact the office if you have any questions about this event.
Who Should Attend
Fleet managers, fleet coordinators, fleet administrators and any individual working to manage an organisation’s vehicles. You should also bring your upper management team, so they’ll be aware of the issues you face and need to plan for in the future.
Topic 1 – “Understanding the risk of mobile assets in the workplace”
Presented by: Chris L’Ecluse
The workplace extends far beyond the four walls of the office. The vehicles that make up an organisation’s fleet are often fraught with the most danger, with statistics showing that over two thirds of all workplace fatalities occur in or around a vehicle.
There are several layers of legislation which governs how vehicles are used in a workplace environment with significant government oversight and penalties for non-compliance.
How can businesses lower potential risk exposure for drivers, staff and executives? And how can new technologies be utilised to mitigate these dangers?
AfMA is delighted to welcome Teletrac Navman Solutions Specialist, Chris L’Ecluse as he draws on over 20 years of Police experience to educate and assist the fleet industry as a whole.
Chris’ presentation will assist fleet operators to:
- Understand the laws
- Minimise risk exposure
- Make driving safer for all road users
- Understand how telematics technology can mitigate the risks
Topic 2 – “Life Without Barrier’s Telematics Journey – Backbone to Success”
