Caroline Perry, Brake's NZ director, says: "The Fleet Safety Awards are a great chance for companies to gain recognition for the hard work they do in reducing incidents involving at-work drivers. The awards are entered by a range of fleet operators and suppliers and I'd urge any organisation successfully managing their occupational road risk to enter the awards; help us make the Fleet Safety Awards 2017 the biggest and best yet!"
The Awards are part of Brake Professional, 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 low-cost membership scheme to gain access to best practice information through webinars and seminars, online and downloadable tools for managers and drivers.
