Fleet operators will be given a glimpse into the processes around a fatal at-work accident investigation at the annual Fleet News Congress on October 14.

The session will be aimed at helping them understand each stage of the procedure and prepare them if their organisation undergoes an investigation.

But it will also highlight areas where fleets could improve their own operations and encourage best practice.

Sergeant Patrick Joyce, a senior investigating officer at South Wales Police, specialising in serious and fatal road traffic collision investigation, will present it.

He said: “The presentation will be looking at a real-life at-work incident from the perspective of an investigating officer.

“It will illustrate the procedure and look at what happens when things go wrong, as well as offer advice to prevent things from going wrong in the first place.

“We don’t want to create or perpetuate a negative impression surrounding the presentation. Hopefully the audience will gain insight surrounding this type of investigation, and understand that if they have any questions about what might happen in these situations, they can come to people like us for advice.”

The Fleet News Congress will be held at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon, Warwickshire. For more information contact Kate Howard on 01733 468146 or email kate.howard@bauermedia.co.uk.
