This year’s finalists include household names such as Nestlé, Royal Mail, and Sainsbury’s, as well as smaller companies including Cogent Breeding, O’Donovan Waste Disposal and South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.

Winners of the 15 awards will be announced at a gala dinner at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on Thursday 29 September 2016.

Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “We’ve been incredibly impressed with this year’s entries and it’s great that many companies have entered our awards for the first time. It is fantastic that so many organisations of different sizes are making a real effort to end the needless crashes on our roads as a result of at-work drivers.
