Road safety professionals will present on a number of current issues, within the context of Covid-19, as part of a one-day webinar taking place next month.
Organised by the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), the Road Safety Group Webinar 2020 sets out to share best practice and promote proactive partnership working.
It is being held on 9 November, with delegate places priced at £30 (excluding VAT).
The agenda comprises a number of presentations from the NFCC, who will outline the work it is doing to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured in road collisions.
Tony Smith, NFCC motorcycle safety lead, will provide an update on issues including the Bikerdown course and the growing e-bike sector.
Meanwhile, Andy Gray, NFCC road safety group member, will present on the ‘Fatal Five’ and the reasons that led Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and Cheshire Police to take this approach.
Elsewhere on the agenda, Elizabeth Box, head of research at the RAC Foundation, will discuss the current work plan of the Pre-Driver Theatre Workshop Evaluation Project – and how this will inform national best practice delivery and increase behavioural change.
James Luckhurst, founder of Project Edward, and Simon Turner, Driving for Better Business, will discuss the origins of Project Edward, its development and the importance of striving for zero tolerance for road deaths.
Other topics to be covered include tyre safety, Road Safety Week and the use of virtual reality (VR) during Covid-19.
