Free Van Excellence event to help operators reduce risk

Van Excellence has launched a brand-new event to promote the safe and efficient operation of vans.

Only 2,162 vans, trucks, buses and coaches left production lines in April
The event will promote the safe and efficient operation of vans

Dubbed ‘Van Operations: Your responsibilities’, the half-day event is free to attend and takes place at RADAR NI in Belfast on 21 August 2019 between 8.30am to 12.30pm.

The event will see Inspector Rosie Leech MBE of the Northern Ireland Police Service (PSNI) join Mark Cartwright, head of vans at FTA, to equip attendees with a comprehensive understanding of how to reduce risk, improve safety and increase the wellbeing of their drivers.

Mark Cartwright commented: “The consequences of operating a van unsafely can be enormous; from large fines, prison sentences, to even loss of life. Operators must take their responsibility to their drivers – as well as other road users – very seriously. That’s why we launched a new event, Van Operations: Your responsibilities, to arm with operators will the toolkit they need to reduce risk by improving safety and increasing the wellbeing of their drivers.”
