The Association of Industrial Road Safety Officers is an organisation which represents anybody which is involved with delivering road safety education or training and exists to reduce the number of accidents and fatalities on the road. The organisation also represents those who promote road safety education, those who work in road safety engineering and those who conduct scientific research into the reduction of road accident casualties. The association is a registered charity as well as the only independent membership organisation of its kind and was formed to provide support for those working in road safety.
It has a Road Safety Advisory panel which consists of members who each head different departments. These include large goods vehicles and training, traffic and highway engineering, motorcycling and managing occupational road risk to name a few. The organisation also has working relationships with the Department for Transport, the Highways Agency and the DVSA. Although there is plenty of educational material and training available, there are some drivers who may still practise unsafe road use.
The importance of education
Although the Association of Industrial Road Safety Officers works to provide road safety education and prevent accidents, there may be some people who do not listen to the advice or are not aware that it is available. Reckless drivers who do not keep updated on the latest road safety advice may cause an accident on the road resulting in an injury or fatality to another driver. Vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists are likely to be injured if drivers are not careful to be aware of their surroundings. If you have been the victims of a road traffic accident that was someone else’s fault, then you may be entitled to compensation.
How to claim compensation with representation
Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in making a compensation claim for a road traffic accident that was the fault of someone else. Provided that you were injured in the accident and there is evidence that someone else was negligent on the road, you may be able to win a cash payout to help you cope with your pain and inconvenience. You may have to take time absent from work causing some financial strain but some compensation may help with this. You can contact us via our 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 to speak with our team of solicitors about your case and we can provide you with no-obligation advice to help you decide whether to take action.
