‘Business champion’ Arval hosts free road safety event for companies

25 January 2010

At least 70 companies will be represented at a major occupational road risk management event being organised by Driving for Better Business ‘business champion’ Arval.

The leading safety-focused fleet and fuel management company is partnering with Wiltshire Fire and Rescue and Swindon Borough Council to run the seminar on February 2, which is free for any South West based company to attend with places still available.

Essential for companies that have employees who drive on business, the event is a follow-up to an Arval seminar last July, which was the first of its kind to be held to promote road safety to local businesses.

Next month’s event will provide business representatives with crucial information on the legal risks that they and their drivers face, examples of occupational road risk management best practise and the financial benefits of investing in road safety.

Arval has a proven track record of supporting businesses in the road safety arena having won a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award and been one of a small number of companies invited to sign up to the European Union Road Safety Charter.

Tracey Young, Fleet and Road Safety Manager at Arval, who has championed the company’s road safety focus, said: “This event pulls together road safety experts to provide content that is relevant and useful to businesses. Most importantly, its powerful messages are guaranteed to create a lasting impression on the day and inspire companies to take the safety of their staff whilst they drive for work very seriously.

“We are delighted with how the previous event went and the excellent response that we had from attendees - that’s why we’re urging any company that didn’t attend to come along.”

The event is being staged at Arval’s UK headquarters - the Arval Centre, Windmill Hill Business Park, Swindon, SN5 6PE from 9.30am to 1.30pm on Tuesday, February 2. To attend the free of charge event email andrea.hider@arval.co.uk
