FN Spring Conference: Expert advice could save lives and cash

VITAL advice on key health and safety issues and this year's Budget that could save lives and money is to be offered at the Fleet News Spring Conference.

The event, called Safety and Numbers and sponsored by Nissan, will take place on March 31, at the Heritage Motor Centre, in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The safety and finance focused event comes just days after Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown reveals his 2004 Budget plans, which are set to have a massive impact on the fleet market.

The two issues are very closely linked, as any Budget rises introduced next week could be offset by more effective risk management.

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 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 such as mobile phones, roadside cameras, driver training, road rage and vehicle tracking.

Each speaker has been chosen as an expert in his or her particular field.

In the afternoon, discussion will move to the impact of the Budget, looking firstly at the outline of the Chancellor's statement, then moving on to fleet specific announcements.

Each speech will finish with an interactive Q&A session, giving delegates the opportunity to focus on their own particular areas of concern.
