Workplaces Get Involved In Road Safety Week
The biggest road safety event in the calendar is gathering pace with many different events being organised before the big Road Safety Week due to start in November.
A new focus of the campaign is to bring in workplaces and let them know more about the positive role they can play in helping to reduce the number of road deaths and casualties each year. The campaign, which is run by national road safety charity, Brake, is particularly targeting businesses who employ drivers.
Look Out For Each Other Campaign
Road Safety Week has been running for 18 years and it kicks off this year from 17th to 23rd November. It will give practical advice to companies on how to approach safer driving with free information packs being handed out. This year the theme of the campaign is ‘look out for each other’ designed to get everyone to look out for each while on the roads. Children and adults on foot, as well as cyclists, are those which the campaigners are asking drivers to look twice for and travel at 20 mph, especially in communities.
Employers Asked To Roll Campaign Out To Staff
Employers are being asked to extend the theme of the campaign and roll it out to their staff who can apply the same principles while they are at work. Julie Townsend, Brake deputy chief executive, believes that employers can play a strong role in road safety. She said: “Each year hundreds of organisations make a tremendous contribution to Road Safety Week, often gaining valuable publicity at the same time, and we’re calling on even more people to get involved this year. Log on to the Road Safety Week website for ideas and to register for a free e-action pack to help you take part.”
