Van Excellence Operational Briefings 2016


FTA's Van Excellence Operational Briefings provide companies with a unique opportunity to explore operational best practice across a range of key areas. Whether you are an existing Van Excellence member, or an operator keen to know where to begin, our Van Excellence briefings are designed to assist you. 

The Van Excellence Operational Briefings 2016 will examine the ramifications - often serious and sometimes catastrophic - of something going wrong, and will look at the strategies and processes operators could and should be putting in place to measure, manage and reduce the risk and impact of shortfalls. 

This year’s Van Excellence Operational Briefings will take a closer look at the way drivers’ actions can impact on how a fleet operation works, and will reflect on how planning and consideration can improve the way they work and the image of the van driver in the UK.

Key Sessions

  • Inspector Paul Talbot, Collision Investigation Unit at the Central Motorway Policing Group, will be underlining the risk and impact of crashes
  • With ever-increasing in-cab technology, how do we ensure that drivers do not become distracted and focus on the task of driving?
  • The cost impact of something going wrong can be considerable - Andy Price, Practice Leader EMEA at Zurich Risk Engineering Europe, examines the implications
  • Understanding the psychology of drivers and how to manage them. We will look at the risk profile of drivers through various age groups and the mindset of why a driver would treat their van differently to their own car
  • Hear from Alison Moriarty, Fleet Risk and Compliance Manager at Skanska, for a Van Excellence operator case study
