Johnson & Johnson scoop road safety award

Prince Michael of Kent has awarded Johnson & Johnson the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for the its long-standing commitment to road safety.

The Johnson & Johnson global Safe Fleet program, which educates and trains employees about safe driving techniques and injury prevention strategies, has led to significant reductions in fleet crashes and injury rates.

Since Safe Fleet was first introduced in 1994, the company’s crashes per million miles driven (CPMM) rate has decreased by 37% globally.

“The goal of Safe Fleet is to ensure that our drivers around the world return home safely at the end of each day – to their benefit and the benefit of their families and communities,” said Alex Gorsky, vice chairman, executive committee, Johnson & Johnson, and executive sponsor of Safe Fleet.

“We’re honored to receive this award and grateful for the attention such an award brings to this critical issue.”

Each year the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award publicly recognizes the most outstanding achievements and innovations designed to improve road safety.
