‘Safety is a top priority for the company and an internal investigation was launched immediately in order to identify the cause of the accident.

‘Over the last three years the number of accidents have shown a consistent year-on-year reduction.

‘The company has, in fact, implemented various measures to this effect including, most importantly, a significant investment in the training scheme for drivers.
