VolkerRail win at Brake Fleet Safety Awards

VolkerRail has been honoured at this year’s Brake Fleet Safety Awards, receiving the Company Driver Safety (medium fleet) Award, for the efforts made to implement initiatives that do most to promote and achieve safer driving among employees.

Road safety is at the heart of our operations, and we will continue to make a significant commitment to embed a safe driver culture within our company and sub-contractor community. We look forward to building on this success through further collaboration with Brake, to strive for exceptional standards of driver safety across our business.”

Brake, the road safety charity, celebrates the achievements of organisations and individuals across the world, working to reduce crashes and prevent pollution caused by vehicles driven for work.

In their entry, VolkerRail showed a clear dedication to continually improving the health, safety and wellbeing of its employees and contractors alike, firmly embedding work-related road safety in the company ethos. A huge well done to everyone involved.”
