Arval has been ‘Highly Commended’ at the national RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety awards. The company was recognised for its commitment to road safety within the managing occupational road risk (MORR) award category.
Underpinned by a Road Safety Charter and steered by a Road Safety Committee, road safety is an important part of Arval’s overall Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach. This has included Arval signing up to the EU Road Safety Charter and becoming a RoadSafe ‘Business Champion’.
In particular, Arval highlighted two key initiatives that support the company’s long term commitment to improve the safety of its customers, business drivers and all other road users. The first was the Arval Road Safety Forum, an industry-leading working party that has been crucial in sharing ideas, good practises and spreading safety messages amongst corporate companies. The second was the Arval Road Safety Seminar which brings companies face to face with the often shattering consequences of an accident, using real victims and professionals from the emergency services.
On the same day Arval were also awarded the RoSPA Merit Award for Occupational Health and Safety
Jenny Powley, Arval’s sales director – card division says: “We are delighted to have been recognised at what is such a prestigious safety awards event. We take great pride in the work we have done within Arval to reduce our occupational road risk and this award is testimony to the efforts we have made. This award comes on top of others the company has recently achieved as we aim to maintain our focus on road risk management and continuing to deliver safety-driven initiatives across our business.”
