New resource to drive forward at-work road safety in Scotland
A resource to help Scottish businesses save lives on the road has been unveiled.
The Scottish Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ScORSA) website went live at the Chief Fire Officers’ Association’s annual road safety conference, in Glasgow.
ScORSA is the result of a multi-partner working group initiated by RoSPA after the safety charity saw that smaller firms were struggling to get to grips with MORR. As well as having an online resource hub where firms can access the latest information and advice, ScORSA offers practical help.
Organisations joining ScORSA - which is free to companies committing to the alliance’s vision statement - will receive up to 10 driver assessments through RoSPA’s Driver Profiler software, an online psychometric risk assessment tool.
New website includes members’ portal and info on training courses etc
