Ensuring the safest fleets across Europe

Safety is paramount for every company, every organisation. But safety is too often taken for granted within the corporate strategy of large organisations, even in fleet and mobility. Attention for safety will not only limit incidents and accidents, it will as well reduce costs, increase productivity and strengthen employee satisfaction.

14h05 The impact of Safety on a fleet’s TCO

Attention to safety minimises risks, incidents and accidents, increases productivity and enhances corporate image and employee satisfaction, hence has a positive effect on your fleet’s TCO and operations.


In this session we will demonstrate the link between Safety and TCO and explain the building blocks of a safety strategy that fits your corporate needs.

14h25 Do’s and Don’ts of the Safety Strategy

Having a vision and a roadmap to develop a safety management programme is nice, but it’s nothing without the implementation and execution.


In this session two corporate fleet managers will share the set-up and roll-out of their safety strategy with concrete tips. Hayley Barone will explain the key elements of Heineken’s holistic safety management programme and share insights into how to obtain results that fit your corporate strategy. Selçuk Gündoğdu of Vaillant Group will show the TCO effectiveness of a well-thought safety programme and the correlation between Safety and Fuel Efficiency.

14h55 The impact of a Safety Programme on Risk & Insurance

When talking about Safety Management, the aspects of insurance and risk management are often neglected or at least don’t get the attention they deserve. Having a good understanding about risk management and insurance is vital for fleet efficiency.


In this session we will detail how to approach risk management and vehicle fleet insurance in the context of international fleet management.
