Our Story

We’re EASST Academy, and we are part of EASST, an independent UK-registered charity. EASST’s aim is to make road travel safer, greener and more sustainable for future generations.

We began in 2009, and since then have built a vibrant network of NGOs across Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia. We also contribute to significant road safety reforms in the region and support to the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. You can read more here.  

For us, education is essential. In 2013 we teamed up with Cranfield University, a globally significant center of expertise in science, technology, and management. Together we produced a pilot course on road safety management systems for fleet managers.

In 2016 we decided to go a step further and build a course that would deliver leading industry expertise to everyone. Accessible training. Regardless of geography. So we teamed up with Cranfield University and IRU Academy to introduce a specially designed online training programme.

‘Road Safety at Work: Online Course for Managers’ aims to help fleet managers set up, run and monitor effective safety systems. By offering the course online we can reach people who may not have had the time to commit to classroom-based lectures. And it’s also significantly cheaper than traditional training programmes – making world-class road safety education more accessible and affordable.

We still offer a traditional in-class training course on fleet safety. So, if you are interested in further learning, or would like to expand your knowledge beyond our online course, please get in touch with us.
