Careys Plant & Fleet are proud to be shortlisted for the 2019 What Van? Awards, for the category of “Safety”.

For the Safety Award category, judges will be looking for those operators that demonstrate the clearest commitment to safety – through initiatives such as driver training, for example. The judges will also consider what products, technologies or manufacturers shortlisted companies are using to protect their drivers, other road users and pedestrians. Are they doing everything they can, for instance, to reduce the danger from potential hazards and to cut down on the likelihood of fatalities or injuries, in the event of collisions or accidents?

We are exceptionally proud to be shortlisted for this recognised industry award. This is a testament to our hard work and to the dedication our team places on safety – exemplified by a series of initiatives that we run throughout the year to promote driver safety. All supported by a series of guides and handbooks that further promote safety and responsible driving.
