This year the National Public Sector Fleet Managers conference will be held from 31 October to 2 November 2018 at Sydney Royal Stables, Sydney Olympic Park.
The conference, hosted by NSW Procurement and supported by each state territory and commonwealth government fleet organisations, will prompt and challenge delegates to consider the implications of emissions and safety policy on vehicle selection, fleet management, operating costs, disposals and the mobile workplace.
Emissions policies have considerable bearing on vehicle fuel types and usage. Recently various governments and manufacturers have announced the phase out of diesel engines whilst many also provide incentives to consumers to purchase hybrid or electric vehicles. Have you considered the impact that emissions policies might have for your current and future fleet?
Similarly, because vehicles provided to employees are their workplaces or, an extension of their workplaces, health and safety policies guide the selection, training and use of those vehicles. Have you considered the impact that workplace, health and safety policies, along with the chain of responsibility, have for your current and future fleet?
The conference generally attracts up to 80 public sector fleet managers from around Australia who represent the driving needs of 1.6 million public servants.
