Brabners joins Driver First Assist at the House of Commons

Brabners joins Driver First Assist at the House of Commons

Tuesday 24th January 2017

Logistics experts from commercial law firm Brabners attended the House of Commons for a debate organised by Driver First Assist last week.

The Rt Hon John Hayes CBE MP, Minister of State at the Department for Transport, gave a keynote address and attendees also heard from speakers Richard Burnett, Chief Executive of the Road Haulage Association (RHA) and Rob Flello MP.

Brabners Partner, Matthew Yates, who is also a Director of Driver First Assist, and Solicitor, Alexander Watson, attended the event along with key representatives from the transport industry, drivers’ unions and the emergency services.

Commenting on the event Matthew Yates said: “John Hayes CBE MP gave a really supportive message about the importance of a first response. He agreed to lead by example and attend a Driver First Assist course and commented, “I could be the bloke who needed to save lives and I’d like to have the skills”.”

Driver First Assist is a not-for-profit road safety initiative seeking to reduce deaths and life-limiting injuries at road traffic collisions by providing first-response training to professional and fleet drivers.

Created in partnership with the emergency services, Driver First Assist trains professional drivers – often the first at the scene - to manage incidents in the vital few minutes before the arrival of the emergency services.

Brabners was a key supporter of the event.
