Jenny King (left in pic), head of home research for Which?, and Julie Dagnall (right in pic), one of Road Safety GB’s child car seat specialists, will deliver a ‘double-header’ presentation at the National Road Safety Conference 2012.
The conference is being hosted by Road Safety GB London Region at the Britannia International Hotel, Canary Wharf, 14-15 November. More than 170 people have now registered to attend the event which is co-sponsored by Colas, RedSpeed International, Alcolock UK and AA DriveTech.
Jenny and Julie’s presentation, Child car seats – how can we make them safer?, will feature in the ‘Topical Topics’ session on the final afternoon of the event.
Jenny will outline the findings of a mystery shopping exercise which highlighted that parents are still getting incorrect and potentially dangerous advice from retailers on how to fit child car seats. She will also outline the Which? retailers’ charter, which is intended to raise standards of advice going forward.
Julie will explain that her company, Child Seat Safety, provides training and advice to anyone responsible for the fitting of child restraints, and the only nationally accredited training course which has been licensed by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
The cost of attending the two-day conference starts at £85 plus VAT per day for day delegates and £295 plus VAT for residential delegates (Road Safety GB members).
