NFU Mutual has joined the UK’s leading tyres safety organisation with the aim of educating its customers and staff about the importance of proper tyres maintenance, especially in the countryside.
Stuart Jackson, chairman of TyreSafe, is delighted that the UK’s leading rural insurer has joined its ranks. Jackson said: “We’re incredibly pleased to welcome NFU Mutual into the TyreSafe family especially given its expertise in risk assessment and its connection with rural communities. We are confident that this added dimension will help us to keep even more drivers safe on our roads.”
Prior to becoming a TyreSafe member, NFU Mutual was already incredibly supportive of the organisation’s work to raise awareness about the importance of making sure tyres are safe and legal. It carried out a number of education based initiatives with its customers including a series of tyres safety seminars in partnership with another TyreSafe member, the British Horse Society. These seminars were recently awarded a prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in recognition of their outstanding contribution to improving road safety.
Nicki Whittaker, a rural affairs specialist for the NFU Mutual, said: “Becoming a member of TyreSafe underwrites our commitment to road safety and highlights the vital contribution tyres make to the safety of people who live and work in the countryside.
“We are looking forward to working with TyreSafe and spreading the tyre safety message to our staff, agents and customers.”
