New-look website for employers and at-work drivers
RoSPA has launched a revamped version of its Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ORSA) website for people who drive for work.
Formed in 2002, ORSA brings together employers, trade unions, local authorities, police forces, safety organisations and professional and trade associations. It aims to raise awareness of work related road safety and to encourage businesses to manage at-work road risk more effectively.
The ORSA website was first launched in 2004 to facilitate and promote the work of the alliance.
The new site provides practical information and advice, and direct links to a wide range of free resources, advice, case studies and research evidence to help employers understand and manage the risks faced, and created, by their employees when driving as part of their work. The new site is also compatible with mobile devices.
Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at RoSPA, said: “About a third of deaths on the road involve someone driving for work, which is why it is so important to highlight and promote occupational road safety.
“We hope our new-look website will encourage organisations to effectively manage the risks faced by their employers while driving for work.”
