Kier Islington gains business champion status

Kier Islington has become the latest company to join the Government at-work driving safety campaign as it's policy triggers major crash reductions.

Driver education and the implementation of a range of safe-driving initiatives has resulted in London-based building maintenance and construction company Kier Islington cutting vehicle crashes by almost a third in 12 months delivering significant financial savings.

Now, Kier Islington is the 46th organisation to become a ‘business champion’ under the Government-backed ‘Driving for Better Business’ campaign, which is managed by RoadSafe. It is also the second Kier Group business to achieve ‘business champion’ status following Kier Harlow earlier this year.

Kier Islington transport manager Jonathan Amechi said: “Through general health and safety initiatives, safe systems of work and Kier-led work-related road safety campaigns and increased driver education, we have been able to reduce vehicle accidents by raising awareness of the importance of road safety. Driving safely and considerate use of our vehicles is now central to who we are and what we do.''
