HIGH WYCOMBE, UK - Johnson & Johnson was recently awarded the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its long-standing commitment to road safety.

The Johnson & Johnson global SAFE Fleet program, which educates and trains employees about safe driving techniques and injury prevention strategies, has led to significant reductions in fleet crashes and injury rates. Since SAFE Fleet was first introduced in 1994, the company's crashes per million miles driven (CPMM) rate has decreased by 37 percent globally, according to Johnson & Johnson.

"The goal of SAFE Fleet is to ensure that our drivers around the world return home safely at the end of each day - to their benefit and the benefit of their families and communities," said Alex Gorsky, vice chairman, Executive Committee, Johnson & Johnson, and executive sponsor of SAFE Fleet.

Each year, the Prince Michael International Road Safety Award publicly recognizes the most outstanding achievements and innovations designed to improve road safety. The award was presented by HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO during a special ceremony at the Johnson & Johnson High Wycombe facility.

SAFE Fleet is just one of many programs designed to protect employees, families, customers, and communities. Johnson & Johnson has set new internal performance targets for SAFE Fleet as part of its five-year sustainability goals, which will be announced later this year.
