ICI car safety record grows

By introducing a driver training programme, ICI Paints has cut the number of accidents it is at fault for, despite increased mileage. Across its fleet of over 400 vehicles ICI Dulux Trade Paints, which supplies its paints to retail and trade outlets across the UK, cut the number of accidents that its drivers were at fault for from 59 to 15. This is despite an 12% increase in mileage. Helen McGreal, safety, health and environmental manager at the paint firm, said that it was very happy to see that its driver training, provided by risk assessment firm Drivetech, had been so successful, but added that it would continue to improve the health and safety features affecting its fleet.
