'Massive interest' in Road Safety Week

ROAD safety organisation Brake is claiming the 'massive' increase in interest from companies in Road Safety Week, which began on Monday, represents a growing acknowledgement of the significance risk management plays in fleets. A total of 1,522 companies are taking part this year in the Brake-organised event, compared to 200 in 1999.

Mary Williams, Brake's executive director, said: 'We are getting a strong message that companies are keen to get involved in pressing home the message that road safety pays at all levels.' She also revealed that Brake is due to begin talks with the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions soon on educating fleets through the newly-formed multi-agency Work Related Road Safety Task Group, charged with assessing the viability of using health and safety legislation in the management of company cars and vans.
