Arval provides leadership role

9 July 2009

Arval, Europe’s leading fleet and fuel management company, is firmly committed to the safety of its employees who drive for work. This has been formalized through Arval’s Road Safety Committee, chaired by the company’s CEO, and its Road Safety Policy. This commitment has been further enhanced by Arval’s role as a Driving for Better Business Champion and now as the focal point for a work related road safety working group.

This group has been driven by the energy and devotion of Arval’s Fleet Manager, Tracey Young, who chairs the group. Comprised mainly of fleet and safety managers from the private sector (including Wolseley), the working group’s objectives are to:

  • To share and understand key fleet and road safety concerns
  • Actively contribute to the ongoing debate on fleet and road safety issues
  • Agree on joint and individual actions for enhancing fleet/road safety

The group recently held its third meeting at the AA offices, Sandwell where AON, Thatcham and DfT all provided respective briefings on the insurance market, vehicle technology and EuroNCAP and the government’s road safety consultation. There was also an opportunity for the group members to experience Volvo’s new automated braking technology, thanks to the team from Thatcham.

Commenting on the establishment of the working group, Caroline Scurr, Director of the Driving for Better Business campaign said: “We are delighted with the work that all our champions do. Our campaign is all about taking a business message to business about the importance of work related road safety; Arval is doing just that through its working group and its other activities. We would welcome and encourage companies from all sectors to adopt similar or innovative approaches to sharing good practice.”
