Entry deadline approaches for Brake annual Fleet Safety awards
The event will take place at the St John's Hotel, Solihull, Birmingham, UK, on Thursday 13 June 2013 and will for the first time combine both the fleet safety conference and fleet safety awards programme.
The awards, sponsored by Arval, recognise the achievements of those working to help reduce the number of costly, and in many cases fatal, road crashes involving at-work drivers. A total of 11 categories will be covered, ranging from Company Driver Safety, to Fleet Safety Innovation, with a new individual category for 2013, Best Newcomer to Road Risk Management. Last year’s winners included Royal Mail, Nestlé Mexico and Gateshead Council.
The conference, sponsored by Aviva, will provide an opportunity to hear from a range of academic and practitioner speakers on key fleet safety issues, as well as best practice examples from organisations.
Conference keynote speakers will include: Dr Lisa Dorn, Reader in Driver Behaviour and Director of the Driving Research Group, Cranfield University; Rory Morgan, National Logistics General Manager, Iron Mountain and Phillip Darby, Lecturer in Statistics, Edinburgh Napier University.
Themes to be covered include:
· Using technology to improve fleet safety
· Community engagement and fleet safety
· Effective partnership working
