Caroline Perry, Brake’s NZ director, says: “The Fleet Safety Awards are a fantastic opportunity for companies to gain recognition for the hard work they do to reduce incidents involving at-work drivers. The awards are entered by a range of fleet operators and suppliers and I’d urge any organisation that has put measures in place to reduce their road risk to enter and help make the Fleet Safety Awards 2019 the biggest and best yet!”

The Awards are part of Global Fleet Champions, an initiative by Brake, the road safety charity for fleet professionals aimed at sharing best practice in road risk management. Anyone involved in managing at-work drivers, and suppliers to fleets, can join the free service to gain access to best practice information through webinars and seminars, and online and downloadable tools for managers and drivers.
