Greene King strikes gold

7 May 2009

Business champion Greene King was awarded its third successive gold by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ (RoSPA) last month for its approach to work-related road safety.

This year's RoSPA award follows golds in 2008 and 2007 and a silver award in 2006, all in the category of Managing Occupational Road Risk (MORR). Furthermore, Greene King received an additional accolade for achieving five successive awards for health and safety in the workplace.

The Suffolk based brewing company has a fleet of over 90 specialist delivery vehicles, as well as a large number of car fleet drivers. Despite the company's growth in the last few years, its dedication to managing its fleet and drivers, has led to a significant overall reduction in collisions and large costs savings.

Paul Blackman, Training Safety Advisor for the company, was delighted with the awards but recognised the need to do more. "We still have a long way to go on the issue of road deaths while driving for work", he said.

Paul and Greene King, as a Driving for Better Business champion, are already working hard to advocate the work related road safety. The company's case study is available at www.drivingforbetterbusiness.com/casestudies/greene.aspx.
