Brake, the road safety charity, is giving fleet operators and suppliers an extra few weeks to get their nominations in for one of its prestigious awards, which recognise improvements made in fleet safety. Organisations who want to be in with a chance to win need to enter online at www.fleetsafetyawards.com by Friday 28 February 2014.
The awards will be presented during a glittering gala dinner following the close of Brake's Fleet Safety Conference. The combined event will take place on Thursday 5 June 2014, at the St John's Hotel, Solihull, Birmingham.
The awards, sponsored by Arval, will be offered in 11 categories, ranging from Company Driver Safety to Road Safety in the Community, with awards also available for outstanding individuals in fleet risk management.
