BT and Tesco.com to speak on driver safety at Driving for Better Business event
British Telecom and Tesco.com, which are both long-established business champion members of the government-backed Driving for Better Business campaign, which is managed by RoadSafe, will be speaking at the event to help encourage Welsh companies to increase their focus on at-work driving safety and so reduce road crashes and cut costs.
The Driving for Better Business Wales event on 29 September is being held in conjunction with South Wales Police and Professional Driver Services (PDS) at the South Wales Police Driver Training Unit in Cardiff. Almost 100 businesses based in Wales are expected to be represented at the event to hear a wide range of speakers.
Apart from hearing the actions taken by both British Telecom and Tesco.com to improve employee safety when driving and reduce their risk exposure, delegates will also hear presentations from Caroline Scurr, director of the Driving for Better Business Campaign; Nick Croft assistant chief constable and director of the training department for South Wales Police; Trevor Wedge, chief examiner of the Driving Standards Agency; Lisa Dorn, head of traffic research at Cranfield University; and Hazel Padmore, from leading law firm Weightmans.
Rebecca Ashton, of Vale of Glamorgan-based PDS, said: 'The event aims to bring together employers, academics and road safety experts to encourage more employers in Wales to address the legal, moral and financial reasons to manage work-related road safety with the business benefits highlighted through the two case studies.'
The event takes place at the South Wales Police Driver Training Unit, Edward House, Dowlais Road, Ocean Way, Cardiff CF24 5TW starting at 10.30am on 29 September. For further details, contact Rebecca Ashton at PDS on 0871 200 2217 or email [email protected].
