Masternaut opens nominations process for Safe From Harm Awards

Taking place on Tuesday 15 March at The ICC Birmingham during the Safe From Harm conference, the awards ceremony is being held by the fleet telematics specialist to recognise excellence in fleet management, safety, driver engagement and community impact.

Fleet businesses are being invited to fill in the online form to nominate themselves for categories. Entries need to only be between 100 and 300 words in length and will be followed by a short telephone interview. 

Applicants can choose from the following categories to enter:

  • Innovation: the Innovation Award is for an organisation who has led the way in safer, greener driving through trying new technologies, policies or practice
  • Improvements in Safety: looking for fleets who can demonstrate real reduced risk through planned and measured programmes of change, which may encompass driver training, vehicle management, technology or policy change
  • Driver Engagement: seeking businesses who through communications, incentive schemes, training or other means have achieved the commitment of drivers to safer, greener driving.
  • Community Impact: for an organisation who has provided better service, safer streets, better air quality or other community benefits, through its fleet management.

Steve Towe, chief commercial officer and UK managing director, commented: “We’re inspired by the vision and moral purpose of businesses of all sizes using telematics, change management, and other technologies to make a real change to the lives of customers, drivers and the public. We’re hoping to see even more of this in entries for the Masternaut Safe From Harm Awards and look forward to hearing how applicants are revolutionising the fleet industry on several fronts.”

The Safe From Harm conference will see directors and managers of fleets, transport, SMEs, operations, risk and finance come together to hear from a variety of speakers, including rugby-hero Sir Clive Woodward, change management consultant Darran Robinson, Dr Natasha Merat from the Institute of Transport Studies and experienced fleet directors from some of the largest companies in the UK.

During the day attendees will be able to compare how their business tackles issues with what others do during focused workshops and through live case studies. Other topics will include: How to measure and reduce risk and How to change the behaviour of drivers.
