Road Safety Week 2015

Road Safety Week 2015 will run from the 23 – 29 November this year and encourages people to get together to promote the cause, share life-saving messages and inspire communities to take action.

Road Safety charity, Brake, set up Road Safety Week in 1997 with the aim to promote road safety awareness and offer information on steps everyone can take to stop needless deaths each year. It also organises a number of fundraising initiatives to help make the streets a much safer place and support road accident victims.

The Scheme is excited to be promoting Road Safety Week 2015 and encourage registered sites, companies and suppliers to engage with their local communities and get involved in supporting the cause.

To assist registered sites, companies and suppliers promote the importance of road safety the Scheme is offering a 10% discount on Ivor’s ‘Hunt the Hazard’, promotional sign and children’s PPE until the end of Road Safety Week.

Industry mascot Ivor Goodsite will also be on hand to help promote the important message of road safety, with the costume available to hire – however, it is advisable to book early due to his diary becoming very full!

Over the past few years there has been a great response from contractors and clients getting involved with Road Safety Week. Each year, there are lots of events which promote this cause and the Scheme is delighted to see so many taking part.

Many registered sites, companies and suppliers already play a huge part in engaging with their local community in raising awareness of road safety. Through Road Safety Week and contractors’ and clients’ own efforts, the importance of road safety is reinforced.
