Free road safety policy seminar

Cambridgeshire County Council is offering employers free places on its seminars to assist them in writing their own road safety policy.

Employers are required by law to manage road safety within their company and, from April, the new Corporate Manslaughter Act will look to shift prosecution from individuals to companies.

Company directors and managers could therefore be prosecuted if they do not manage the work related road safety of their employees.

Cambridgeshire County Council’s road safety team successfully bid for a grant from the Department for Transport to assist companies within their region to manage work-related road safety.

As a part of this bid, the council is running the free one-day seminars for managers to assist them in forming work-related road safety policy.

The seminars are supported by Peterborough City Council, Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Roadsafe, a forum linking road safety professionals and the motor industry as well as three local businesses.

The first seminar attracted managers and directors from 25 companies across Cambridgeshire.

Places are still available for the remaining seminars and are free to any company within the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area.

To book, contact the road safety team on 01480 375105 or email jenny.stannard@cambridgeshire.gov.uk
