A Global Fleet Safety Benchmarking Workshop was held in Bangkok on 21-22 March 2007. The workshop was organized by Benchmarking Partnerships and the ARRB Group, and involved over 50 participants from a range of governmental and private sector organisations. Through an exchange of knowledge, experience and expertise the participants examined practices that can be implemented to manage work-related road safety. It also explored the ways that organisations can interact with the community to reduce road related injury risk. For more information see: www.benchmarkingpartnerships.com.au
