Why does road safety matter to the NTC in particular in relation to workplaces?

There are many ways Australia can work together to make our roads safer. This includes areas governments are responsible for such as compliance and legislation and policy development, but it also includes encouraging thousands of Australian organisations to do their bit too.

Good organisations can have a  greater influence on their employees’ health and wellbeing than just what happens at workplaces. By supporting the NRSPP the NTC is making sure Australian organisations get the information and encouragement they need to keep their employees (and suppliers, and customers) safe on the roads.

The NRSPP provides a library of best practice road safety measures that have been proven to work. They are providing a means for companies to come together and share problems and successes in dealing with safety. There is no point keeping any road safety successes secret.  If organisations find something that works they should actively share it around – even to their competitors. The NRSPP plays a unique and effective role in doing this and are helping to drive the road toll down.
