A-one+ and Colas have been awarded a 2014 Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.
Presented by His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent, the award recognised recent work with the freight transport industry on the No Strikes Impact Protection Vehicles (IPV) Education Initiative.
Representatives from A-one+ and Colas joined over 300 guests and other award winners from as far a field as Abu Dhabi, Australia, India, Dubai and the Netherlands.
Commenting on the initiative the judges described the No Strikes initiative as “world class”.
Following a increasing trend of collisions between HGVs and roadworks vehicles, the No Strikes initiative has seen A-one+ develop training in collaboration with Norbert Dentressangle and the Freight Transport Association (FTA) to raise awareness of IPVs among this key customer group. The training has been accredited by the Joint Approvals Unit for Periodic Training (JAUPT) as part of mandatory driver CPC training and adopted by a dozen national freight transport companies including DHL, Wincanton and Eddie Stobart. Over the past 12 months four A-one+/Colas staff have visited freight transport operators around the country and trained their trainers to enable the efficient cascade of the training throughout the organisations.
