Our Grey Fleet Seminar was held on Thursday 21 October 2010. You can find the outputs of the seminar on this page.
The Wales Audit Office hosted this free event as part of its duty to promote improvement, and provide practical and proven ways to reduce costs, whilst securing environmental and health and safety benefits - drawing on its wealth of experience from across the Welsh public sector.
How the results of the Good Practice Seminar can help you get the best out of your grey fleet
Grey fleet is the term used to refer to private vehicles used by staff for business purposes. Each year, across the Welsh public sector, the grey fleet travels over 100 million miles at a cost of over £50 million, emitting over 20,000 tonnes of CO2.
Due to recent legislation such as the Corporate Manslaughter Act, employers need to do more to ensure staff are safe to drive and their vehicles are road worthy and insured. The implications of not doing so are serious for your organisation. The Seminar highlighted examples of good practice and allowed time to discuss and share learning.
Delegates took away practical ideas on how to reduce costs and carbon emissions and also increase the safety of staff. Presentations can be downloaded below.
Our guest speakers included:
The Cabinet Office - Managing Grey Fleet in the Public Sector, pulling together key themes setting out what support is available to help organisations improve.
