Atlas Wards Structures of Sherburn champion road safety for their workers

Safer Communities Partnership logoApprentices at 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.”
