TWO THOUSAND employees are helping companies across South Yorkshire to lower fuel costs, improve road safety and reduce the environmental impact of fleet vehicles after taking part in our government-backed business driving scheme.

Eco-Business Driving offers free expert advice, training, and Health and Safety legislation guidance, and recently celebrated a key milestone as the 2,000th driver, from Rotherham-based Roy Hatfield Limited completed the programme. Sean Brammah, Supervisor from Roy Hatfield Limited, said: -It's an honour to be the 2,000th member to complete the training. I've always considered myself to be a safe driver but the initiative has opened my eyes on how to improve safety, plan ahead as well as reduce my fuel consumption. -We take a proactive approach to the Health and Safety of our workforce and by taking part in the Eco-Business Driving scheme our company has benefitted by reducing costs, and our staff have become more economically aware and safer drivers. Eco-Business Driving forms part of South Yorkshire's Local Sustainable Transport Fund initiative, and is delivered locally by Inmotion!, together with Sheffield City Council's Road Safety Team and eDriving Solutions Ltd. The scheme is still open for businesses to sign up and there are still some spaces at our free breakfast event on Tuesday 21 July at the Holiday Inn, Doncaster A1(M).
