We’ve made great strides in improving heavy vehicle safety in Australia. But, as we face increasing demand for freight and development in our cities, it is timely to focus on the safety of our growing urban freight task.
In this webinar, Michael Holmes, Road Transport Safety Advisor for Sydney Metro, shares the findings from his 2018 Churchill Fellowship to Investigate Best Practice to Improve Heavy Vehicle Safety in Urban Environments.
Michael explores a range of accreditation schemes, local government policies, training programmes and vehicle safety standards designed to improve the safety of urban heavy vehicle freight in the United Kingdom, European Union and United States, and provides recommendations where replicating such practices can bring great benefits for us in Australia.
Michael also won the NRSPP sponsored best paper with implications for workplace road safety at the Australasian Road Safety Conference 2019. As part of his award NRSPP ask him to share his research in our Thought Leadership: Safely delivering the growing urban freight task – Learning from international best practice and this webinar.
