Employers Urged To Engage With Road Safety Week
28th August 2013
Employers have been urged to sign up now and take an active role in Road Safety Week, which takes place between 18th and 24th November.
The annual road safety event, which is coordinated by Brake and involves thousands of different groups, aims to reduce the number of motor vehicle accidents and car crashes that take place on the UK’s roads.
Every day, road traffic accidents kill five people and seriously injure another 63, the campaign pointed out, urging employers to visit www.roadsafetyweek.org.uk to register with the campaign.
Julie Townsend, Brake deputy chief executive, said many employers engage with the event every year to support their workforce’s health and safety, as well as that of the wider community.
People who are driving while at work are involved in a large proportion of serious motor vehicle accidents, which cost businesses dearly as well as the victims, she revealed.
Creating health and safety policies and a “safe driving culture” can significantly improve at-work motorists’ safety and a business’ bottom line, Ms Townsend added.
Headline sponsors of Road Safety Week include Romex and Specsavers.
