We've been shortlisted for a Fleet Safety Award

We’re very proud to have made it to the final stage of the national Fleet Safety Awards this year. We’re one of six companies to have been shortlisted in the ‘Company Driver Safety Award (medium fleet)’ category.

The Fleet Safety Awards is a prestigious annual event, run by national road safety charity, Brake. The awards recognise the achievements of those working to help reduce the number of road crashes involving at-work drivers and is open to organisations running any size or type of fleet, as well as companies providing road safety products or services to fleets. This year’s finalists include household names such as FedEX, Royal Mail Group, and British Gas, as well as a host of smaller companies.

Brake received a record number of first-time entries this year and more than 70 organisations were shortlisted across 15 different award categories. The full list of finalists can be viewed here.

Katie Shephard, development director at Brake, commented: “Congratulations to all organisations which have been shortlisted. The standard was exceptionally high this year and we’re looking forward to working with our external judges to select some well deserving winners. 

“We’ve been incredibly impressed by Novus Property Solutions and their entry into our Fleet Safety Awards. It is fantastic that they are making a real effort to end the needless crashes on our roads as a result of at-work drivers. Our judges now have the difficult task of choosing the winners and we wish Novus Property Solutions the best of luck and look forward to seeing them all at our awards dinner.”

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on Thursday 28 September 2017, at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, Birmingham.

The Novus Big Five, our flagship charity project, has been shortlisted in the National Building Awards, the annual celebration of the best of the construction industry. The Big Five campaign is one of four finalists in the community engagement category, with the winner due to be announced at an awards ceremony in May. For the initiative, we canvased nominations for worthy projects in five locations across the UK to each receive a £20,000 investment. The renovation projects that were chosen by our own team of judges included: Home refurbishment The conversion of a derelict two-bedroom house in Leeds into a modern property for a vulnerable person on behalf of Latch (Leeds Action to Create Homes). The charity reduces homelessness in the city by providing supported housing for those ready to make a positive change. Maternity ward refurbishment Refurbishments at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton created a new bereavement suite for parents who have sadly lost a child during birth for charities Abigail’s Footsteps and Oscar’s Wish. The work included the creation of an apartment at the hospital. Dudley Community Centre Refurbishment Refurbishment of a community centre in a primary school in Dudley, near Birmingham, resulted in the opening of a new learning hub for parents and children. The space now helps new parents and offers facilities for health checks as well as and a childcare centre during the summer holidays. Livingstone Community Centre Refurbishment Refurbishments at a community centre in Livingstone, Scotland, which provides courses and workshops for young people.

The new fully-heated garden office is used as a counselling room and will be used as part of the charity’s 12-week recovery programme. The resounding success of the project in supporting our corporate social responsibility (CSR), where our mission is to change the lives of people in communities where we work, and engaging with the community led to the shortlisting. It supports our view that our CSR initiatives are some of the best, most engaging and transformative in the sector.
