Scania receives international road safety award
Scania has been awarded a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its work and commitment to improve standards of road safety. The company entered the awards scheme with a dual-approach submission based upon its efforts to improve commercial vehicle driver training and its ongoing programme of vehicle-based innovation and improvement.
As an extension to the original Prince Michael Road Safety Awards, which were created in 1987 to promote excellence in road safety within the UK, the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards today recognise outstanding road safety achievements worldwide.
"A commitment to improved road safety is part of Scania’s heritage, strategy and brand image. We implement this approach wherever we operate in the world. In light of this longstanding commitment to road safety through innovation, driver training and education, we are delighted to have received this award." comments Cecilia Edström, Senior Vice President Scania Corporate Relations.
The Prince Michael International Road Safety Award was presented to Scania at the road safety seminar “In the driver’s seat” held in London, on 20 September 2005. Additionally, the company will be officially congratulated by His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent at a Gala Presentation to be held in London, on 6 December 2005.
