Conference highlights fleet health and safety issues

THE impact of a new Corporate Manslaughter Bill will be one of the issues tackled at the Fleet News Spring Conference – Double Jeopardy.

Held on May 26 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, it will feature key industry speakers discussing the latest issues surrounding both corporate and financial risk. Using expertise in each speaker’s field backed by insightful case studies, this year’s Fleet News Spring Conference will analyse concerns about risk but will also share good practice to help fleet managers stay on top of the challenges ahead.

Five speakers will deal with corporate risk, including Roger Williams, an ex-corporate lawyer who will outline how the legal authorities are dealing with health and safety breaches and David Faithful, a partner at Clarke Wilmott Solicitors, looking at duty of care legislation and offering guidance for fleets. Charles Davis from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will offer guidance on safe driving for fleets and Graham Hine from the Adult Learning Inspectorate will outline how his fleet policy operates and the benefits it has on drivers.

Euro NCAP will also be explained with a speaker showing why it should become an essential criteria in any car buying policy. On the financial risk side, leading tax expert Alison Chapman will outline the changes and tax challenges facing fleet managers as a result of the budget.

Stewart Whyte, director at the Association of Car Fleet Operators, will discuss the implications of the forthcoming General Election for fleets and analyse the implications of the recent budget.
