SAFED - Fuel Champion
Selected by the company, the fuel champion is someone who is chosen to take the responsibility for tracking the progress of the fuel management programme and this ensures it is implemented correctly and successfully.
Who makes a good fuel champion?
Here’s what they need to be able to do:
- Understand how fuel consumption figures are generated, how errors occur and how to correct them
- Recognise the potential for fuel saving and how to fulfil it
- Understand how on-board fuel-monitoring equipment can be used to encourage fuel saving
- Communicate freely and easily with everyone involved in the fuel-saving programme (which probably means everyone in the company)
Typically a companies' Fuel Champion is a person that can be relied on to encourage good driving practices, that overviews each drivers performance within a company and highlights and re-confirms the most fuel efficient practices to all drivers.
And when the fuel champion’s job is done well, everyone shares in the success that follows saving fuel and money.
Wallace School of Transport can deliver training to your chosen Fuel Champion to help them understand the SAFED programme and perform well in their new role.
