Finalists announced for Brake's Fleet Safety Awards 2016

Organisations from across the globe have made it through to the final stage of Brake’s Fleet Safety Awards 2016.

The road safety charity received a record number of first-time entries this year and now more than 60 organisations are in with a chance of winning one of 15 prestigious awards.

The annual event, sponsored by ARI and supported by FORS, recognises the achievements of fleet operators and suppliers who are working hard to reduce road crashes involving at-work drivers.

This year’s finalists include household names such as Nestlé, Royal Mail and Sainsbury’s, as well as smaller companies such as Cogent Breeding, O'Donovan Waste Disposal and South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.

A full shortlist (details below) has now been released for each category, and winners will be announced at a gala dinner on Thursday, September 29, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, Birmingham.

Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “We’ve been incredibly impressed with this year’s entries and it’s great that many companies have entered our awards for the first time.

"It is fantastic that so many organisations of different sizes are making a real effort to end the needless crashes on our roads as a result of at-work drivers.

"Our judges now have the difficult task of choosing the winners and we wish all our finalists the best of luck and look forward to seeing them all at our awards dinner.”
