The Scottish Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ScORSA) promotes risk management and road safety to businesses throughout Scotland and works together with various organisations including safety organisations, local authorities, emergency services and trade unions. They work with these organisations to raise awareness of the need for action in work related road safety for businesses. ScROSA encourages organisations to work together to exchange information on new initiatives and best practice. They also provide free resources to help businesses work on their road safety and training. They offer a Driving Risks at Work Toolkit which provides employers with the means to educate employees who drive as part of their work. They also offer seminars and workshops to help employers create a healthy road safety culture within their business.
As part of their campaigning, ScORSA create recommendations to the Scottish Government on road safety practices which may help keep Scotland’s roads safer. Their Young Drivers at Work project created awareness on employers’ responsibility to train all young drivers at work and to provide guidance on how to perform their role within the business. Their Cycling Action Plan for Scotland is based on the vision that by 2020, 10% of all journeys in Scotland will be taken by bike and was designed to create awareness of how other road users can show courtesy to cyclists on the road.
How raising awareness can help
Organisations like the Scottish Road Safety Alliance create awareness of certain issues which may need to be addressed in the UK regarding road safety. They can help employers to show a more responsible attitude towards road safety for their drivers and can educate people on how training creates a positive road safety culture within a business. Although many companies have well-trained drivers, there are still many drivers who may not follow the training. If you have been involved in an accident that was the fault of another road user, you may be able to claim compensation.
