Road safety charity Brake has announced the shortlist for its UK Fleet Safety Awards sponsored by DRiiVE WiTH Matrix.
Brake runs its UK Fleet Safety Awards annually to recognise and celebrate the achievements of those working to reduce crashes and prevent pollution caused by vehicles driven for work.
The road safety charity received an overwhelmingly high number of entries and now more than 40 organisations are in with a chance of winning one of 13 prestigious awards. See the full shortlist here. Winners will be announced on the night.
Sarah Plumb, senior fleet officer, at Brake, the road safety charity says: “The awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of organisations and individuals going above and beyond to prevent crashes and reduce pollution caused by vehicles used for work purposes.
The quality of entries was incredibly high and we would like to say a big thank you to all those who entered. Congratulations to all those shortlisted this year and we wish you the very best of luck.
We hope you can join us in celebrating the efforts of those working tirelessly to make our roads safer.”
The domestic awards ceremony provides an opportunity to meet other fleet professionals, as well as Brake supporters and volunteers, and share best practice in managing road risk. They each include a networking reception and dinner – the perfect opportunity for attendees to network with their peers and industry specialists.
Global Fleet Safety Awards
Although the UK road safety awards are now closed, we are still accepting entries for the Global Fleet Champions Awards.
The Global Fleet Champions Awards celebrate best practice in safe and healthy mobility for fleets anywhere in the world, including in low- and middle-income nations where occupational road risk management is evolving slowly.
Brake welcomes entries from organisations operating anywhere in the world, running any size or type of fleet.
The first ever Global Fleet Champions Award for Fleet Analysis and Action was awarded to a Kenyan coach company in May 2019. EasyCoach Ltd was recognised as a role model for other bus companies in Kenya and across sub-Saharan Africa for its use of fleet management information systems to deliver safe and efficient transport. The award was presented by Pamoja Road Safety Initiative at Nairobi’s Kenyatta International Conference Centre. Read the full news story here.
The remaining four awards will be issued throughout the rest of the year at ceremonies in the nation in which each award-winner is based.
