Brake, the road safety charity has recognised organisations for their contribution to improving the safety of at-work drivers, at its annual Fleet Safety Awards.
Winners were announced at a prestigious ceremony held on Thursday September 29 at Hilton Metropole in Birmingham. The awards, sponsored by ARI and FORS, were attended by almost 400 guests, making it Brake’s biggest safety awards to date.
Big winners on the night were the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, who picked up two awards. Alison Moriarty of Skanska retained the Road Risk Manager of the Year title, and the prestigious Kevin Storey Award for Outstanding Commitment to Road Safety went to Malcolm Maycock, of License Bureau.
Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “We were delighted to receive so many strong entries again this year, with organisations and individuals across the world doing fantastic work to make our roads safer for everyone.
