Caroline Perry, Brake’s NZ director, says, “The Fleet Champions 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 Champions Awards 2021 the biggest and best yet!”
Greg Lazzaro, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, Safety, Health and Environment General Manager says, “These at-work drivers are mums, dads, sons, daughters and important whānau members who we all want to see make it home safely. Road safety is a critical health and safety at work issue we know industry is taking seriously. We want to see these important initiatives recognised, shared and discussed so more people can see good practice and implement it.”
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 events and online and downloadable tools for managers and drivers.
