Safety MAN Truck scoops an award

NZ Trucking Association’s Safety MAN Truck receives the Australian Road Safety in the Community Award 2018

NZ Trucking Association’s Safety MAN Truck was recently recognised on an international platform when it was presented with the Australian Road Safety in the Community Award 2018 from Blake—a not-for-profit charity that recognises the achievements of those working to help promote road safety.


Brake was established in 1995 and operates internationally from its bases in the UK and New Zealand. It coordinates Road Safety Week, inviting participants worldwide. The Australian Road Safety in the Community Award 2018 is awarded to the organisation that has worked hardest with its community to improve road safety for all road users.

"Bridgestone are delighted to sponsor the award and congratulate the NZ Trucking Association—Safety MAN Truck on their success" Bridgestone NZ executive Bill Dyall says.

"Their efforts make them a deserved winner and will contribute a positive influence in improving road safety. This award recognises their school and community visits, their work on driver fatigue, and their mobile classroom programmes, all of which are fantastic initiatives."

Dave Boyce, CEO NZ Trucking Associations, attended the awards and accepted the award on behalf of the small team that run the Safety MAN.

"The Safety MAN has been a huge undertaking for the small team at the NZ Trucking Association. Launching in August 2017, since then it has seen more than 16,000 people visit the Safety MAN. The programmes that run from the Safety MAN have been evaluated independently and have been proven to be saving lives and serious injuries on the road. These awards have been a great reward for the team and sponsors and great profile to get people talking about Road Safety."
