European Transport Safety Council announces 2017 work-related road safety award winners

30 October 2017

The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) has announced the 2017 winners of the PRAISE awards, in recognition of outstanding efforts taken by companies to improve road safety at work.

The large company award goes to National Vehicle Distribution (NVD), a family-owned vehicle transportation and storage company in Ireland. The small and medium-sized enterprise award goes to ATF, a Belgian road construction company. Jacobs, one of the world’s largest construction services firms, has been highly commended by the award judges.

Antonio Avenoso, Executive Director of ETSC said:

“This year’s inspiring award winners demonstrate that road safety of employees is not just a company’s responsibility, it also makes for good business. PRAISE award winners have shown time and again that company-wide road safety programmes reduce insurance and fleet costs, cut employee sick days and improve customer service.

“But companies, especially small and medium enterprises, often lack the resources and the knowledge to manage road safety more effectively. That’s why it’s crucial that the European Union, governments and local authorities offer the support that is so badly needed.”
