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.
