IAM Fleet and BP mark 10 year relationship

IAM Fleet and BP are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the creation of the road safety partnership.

Since the two companies began working together more than 7,000 BP employees have undergone IAM driver training programmes.

IAM Fleet’s business development manager Sue Pesch said: ‘BP’s attitude towards road safety is a model for all companies. It employs a director of road safety (Ken Shaw) and rules that nobody can drive a BP company car without first undergoing at least some level of extra driver training.

’For the last two years it has operated a stringent programme known as the Driving Safety Standard (DSS). This and the related driver training are understood to have notably reduced serious incidents involving BP’s very sizeable car fleet.’

Last year BP received the Premier 2005 Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its pioneering work.
