Atlas Wards Structures of Sherburn champion road safety for their workers
Atlas Ward Structures of Sherburn have taken part in a road safety
initiative delivered by a county council road safety officer and
local Fire Service officer.
The event, also supported by Scarborough
Borough Council’s Safer Communities team, delivered hard-hitting
road safety messages in an informal and engaging way, aimed at
raising awareness of risk taking while driving and the consequences
of being involved in a road traffic collision.
This is the third year that Atlas Wards
Structures has invited members of the road safety partnership to
speak to their workforce.
North Yorkshire County Council road safety
officer, Andrew Santon, said: “It is really encouraging to find a
local company which takes a proactive approach to road safety among
its staff. We’re keen to work with any local businesses to raise
awareness of road safety and managing occupational road risk.”
Scarborough Fire Station Manager, Mark
Naylor, chairman of the local road safety partnership, said:
“Worrying a third of all those involved in collisions on our roads
are driving for work purposes. Engaging with employers to
manage occupational road risk is a priority and we are particularly
keen to engage with local businesses.”
Scarborough Borough Council community safety officer, Lesley
Philps, added: “The work by the county council and local fire
station is part of the 95 Alive campaign and has the full support
of the borough council’s Safer Communities team. We work
hand-in-glove with many local organisations to help deliver safety
messages to residents and businesses.”
