O’Donovan Waste Disposal was named winner of the safe vehicles award the Brake Fleet Safety Awards.
It was presented with its award in recognition of efforts to ensure its fleet of 85 HGVs are amongst the safest on the roads in London, by investing in vehicle specification and modification, technology and ensuring comprehensive and effective checking procedures are in place.
Brake, the national road safety charity, is celebrating its 20th anniversary year in 2015 and this year’s ceremony was the biggest to date.
The awards, which saw fleet managers and suppliers gathered to recognise the achievements of those working to manage road risk and reduce the number of accidents, celebrated best practice across a broad range of industries.
O’Donovan managing director Jacqueline O’Donovan said: “To be pitted against giants such as Network Rail, Transport for London and SIG in this category and to win is a massive accomplishment for us as an SME operator.
“Protecting vulnerable road users is of utmost importance to our company and to have our efforts recognised in this way is a great achievement.
“I believe this award helps demonstrate our commitment to ensuring our operation is as safe as it possibly can be.”
