Australasian Fleet Management Association (AfMA) produced a Safer Motoring Guide many years ago and continues to advocate for safety for all road users. AfMA connects safety specialists/experts with fleet managers through its professional development forums and annual conference & exhibition in addition to recognising best practice at its annual awards night.

AfMA has a proud history of advocating safety for all road users and we understand that more can be achieved working in collaboration than each organisation working independently.

AfMA has recently collaborated with NSRPP and other major organisations in launching the Safe Use of Mobiles in Vehicles Guide and AfMA has agreed to host the baseline survey for any organisation wanting to participate.
