Free Scottish event to focus on managing occupational road risk

The organisation has been created by a multi-partner working group initiated by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) to raise awareness of MORR.

The St Andrew’s Seminar will take place at Edinburgh’s Radisson Blu Hotel on Tuesday 25th November to address the dangers of driving for work.

The seminar will provide delegates with information, advice and support on MORR policies and standards, the operational advantages of MORR, telematics and driving for work.

Other issues to be covered include:

  • Driver health checks – mandatory and essential policies to keep the workforce healthy, legal and safe  
  • Liability
  • The face of road safety in Scotland – a guide to resources and responsibility
  • SQA Qualification – the benefits of the MORR module to your business.

Sandy Allan, RoSPA’s road safety manager for Scotland, said: ‘Unfortunately, more employees are killed in at-work road accidents than in all other occupational accidents combined.

‘We are inviting anyone who has an interest in occupational road safety to come along to the seminar and take advantage of a tremendous networking opportunity. We will also be answering all their questions on the day.

‘A third of road crashes involve someone who is driving for work purposes, which is why it makes good business sense to manage occupational road risk.’

The event is free to attend to anyone who registers. For further information and an application form, visit www.scottishroadsafety.com/training.html

Completed application forms should be forwarded to [email protected]
