The Institute of Advanced Motorists has scooped a major European award for its efforts in improving road safety at work through its own staff driving guidelines and safeguards.
The accolade has come from the Brussels-based European Transport Safety Council, a leading non-profit organisation dedicated to reducing the numbers of deaths and injuries in transport in Europe.
The ETSC has credited the IAM in its PRAISE awards in Brussels. The awards recognise organisations in Europe that have taken ‘outstanding measures to improve road safety at work.’
The IAM, Britain’s biggest independent road safety charity, scooped the award in the small and medium-sized enterprise category, and was credited for its online and on-road risk assessment of all staff driving on work business, annual targets to reduce total mileage and number of collisions, and a company car scheme requiring Euro NCAP five star rating and random inspection of vehicles.
