Every year, thousands of schools, organisations and communities get involved in Road Safety Week to shout out for people’s right to make safe and healthy journeys every day.
If you employ people who drive for work, Road Safety Week is a great opportunity for you to engage your staff with important road safety issues, and to demonstrate that you are a responsible organisation that puts people first and cares about their safety. It’s also an easy way to underline your corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitments and show that you are working to make roads safer for everyone.
The theme of Road Safety Week 2022 is SAFE ROADS FOR ALL. It will raise awareness of key areas of road safety, including safe roads, safe vehicles and speeds; the new hierarchy of road users; and the importance of inclusivity to keep us all safe on the roads, no matter who we are, or how we travel.
In this webinar you will hear from organisations that support Road Safety Week about why taking part is so important to them. You will also learn:
- How to take part in Road Safety Week 2022
- How taking part in Road Safety Week can support your CSR strategy
- The moral, legal, and sustainability obligations that fleet companies have to their employees and communities
- The potential benefits for your business of showing that your organisation cares about the community in which it operates.
Who should attend?
Representatives of any organisation in the UK that employs people who drive for work, including:
- Fleet managers
- Health and safety managers
- Transport managers
- HR professionals
The webinar is also relevant for road safety NGOs, fleet suppliers, insurers, fleet risk management and driver training providers.
