What the latest focus on safety/corporate killing means to fleets and how it could save you money
March 31 2004
Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire
Sponsored by Nissan
This year's Fleet News Spring Conference focuses on two of the most important areas of concern in the UK fleet industry in 2004 - safety and finance.
From the smallest operators running a few vans up to the giant leasing companies no one can afford to ignore safety in the fleet industry. Spanning four separate sessions in the morning, this year's Fleet News Spring Conference will analyse a broad range of safety issues - from the Health and Safety Executive's Driving At Work document to car and van safety, through to more detailed subjects like mobile phones, roadside cameras, driver training, road rage and vehicle tracking. Each speaker has been chosen as an expert in his or her field.
