Driver safety groups merge

TWO business driver safety organisations, The Fleet Driver Training Association and Fleet Forum, have merged to form the Fleet Safety Association.

The move signals a renewed drive to raise awareness of key safety issues among fleets and offer a single point of contact for companies looking for advice on reducing accidents.

Members of the FDTA voted unanimously at their recent annual meeting for the merger, which will be announced at the Fleet Forum's meeting in Birmingham today, effectively making the event the inaugural meeting of the FSA.

The FSA is open to all driver training companies and fleet risk management companies as well as insurance companies, fleet decision-makers and other parties interested in promoting at-work safety.

John Ascroft, head of risk services at the RAC and currently chairman of the FDTA, said: 'Formation of the FSA is a hugely positive step forward. The FDTA or the Fleet Forum could not previously claim to represent the views of the entire industry.'
