Webinar: How Your NGO Can Reduce Work-Related Road Casualties—Coming Soon

In fall 2017, the Alliance, in collaboration with the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST) and the Automobile Club of Moldova (ACM), will be launching a new webinar on occupational road safety. 

Background

One in three road crashes happens when people are driving for work purposes. Therefore, reducing the risk of commercial vehicles and public transport in this way could play a significant role in cutting road fatalities globally and achieving the targets of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020.

Alliance member ACM, Moldova, has created a fleet-management training program that has seen an 85% reduction in fatalities and 53% reduction in injuries on public transport over a three-year period. In this webinar, EASST will present the case for occupational road safety and how NGOs can influence that agenda, and ACM will present their case study, explaining their partnerships with public transport agencies, the police, and local governments, the learning they took from fleet management projects in other countries, and how they achieved their impressive results.

Objective

  • To present the case for improving occupational road safety management and how this links to the SDG targets
  • To demonstrate to road safety NGOs globally how they can proactively contribute to this mission
