We invite you to join NRSPP Program Partner Australia Post in a free webinar Stay Alert! There’s a life riding on it on 21 May.
The webinar explores Australia Post’s first road safety campaign which is a commitment to help protect their workers and support their UN Decade of Action on Road Safety action to share the responsibility for road safety.
When people think about the greatest risk to the iconic postie most will believe it to be the dog. In reality, though it is not the dog but the motor vehicle. Australia Post has 15,000 vehicles on the country’s road on any given day. The road represents huge exposure to its workforce. When you think about the 6,500 posties on their motorcycles they have little protection and are extremely vulnerable to other road users. For Australia Post a mistake made by car driver can be catastrophic which is why it has embarked on its first road safety campaign, it needs all road users to share the responsibility of protecting all of its workers, especially its most vulnerable posties on motorbikes and pushbikes.
The issue for Australia Post is how do they provide a safe work environment for their workers, for the postie that delivers mail every day, when it relies predominately on the actions of third parties.
The only way is to appeal to the third parties, other road users. To ask them to see the postie and recognise their decisions when entering and on the road can have consequences.
Australia Post and NRSPP would like to invite you to understand their road safety campaign. The “Stay Alert! There’s a life riding on it” campaign is a first for Australia Post as they have never utilised their iconic vehicle brand as part of a campaign.
