Masternaut & Balfour Beatty Fleet Services recognised for fleet safety partnership
Organised by road safety charity Brake, the awards celebrate those working in the field of road risk management to improve safety and help reduce the number of road crashes involving at-work drivers.
Masternaut was awarded “Highly Commended” for its work with Balfour Beatty Fleet Services, which has delivered “the most outstanding results to improve fleet safety”.
Balfour Beatty Fleet Services (BBFS) partnered with Masternaut last year in order to bring it closer to its “Zero Harm” goal, meaning zero fatalities, and zero accidents and injuries across all of the organisation’s operating companies. As the Balfour Beatty fleet operator, BBFS operates the ninth largest fleet in the UK, supplying and managing over 10,000 cars, LCVs, LGVs and specialist commercial vehicles – and required a solution which could support the diverse areas of its business.
Steve Towe, European managing director of Masternaut, said: ‘Improving fleet safety is fundamental in reducing the untenable rate of work-related accidents. Masternaut is leading the drive for corporate fleets to create a culture of responsibility, ensuring their employees are driving responsibly, with safe driving factored into training and reinforced with incentives. We are proud that this has been recognised by Brake.’
