The Excellence in Road Safety Awards 2022 is an annual opportunity to recognise the contributions of our community of members towards the common goal of improved road safety across Europe. Taking place on 17 October, this year there were 4 categories in which the very best initiatives were spotlighted; Component of a Safe System Approach, Professional Drivers, Young People, and Technology.
This year’s winner in the Professional Drivers category is ACCIONA Energía (Spain) for their incredible work on the Drive Safe Program. We would like to extend our congratulations for their hard work in making roads safer!
ACCIONA Energía committed to introducing its Drive Safe programme across their global organisation to reduce traffic incidents through driver training, vehicle equipment, and facility safety. Drivers receive both theoretical and practical training and the programme has reached over 1000 employees across Spain, Chile, and Mexico.
The company also make improvements to their vehicles by equipping them with, among other tools, sensors, and first-aid kits. There has been a strong involvement of managers in the programme at all levels, including the most senior managers, and it has resulted in an 86% reduction in crashes among employees.
