What sector does your organisation operate within?

Consulting Engineering

What size is your fleet or the number of staff who generate your transport task?

Even though we have a fleet of only one vehicle, we have twenty transport engineers working on road safety. The mobility of workers with regards to their daily commute and grey fleet movements are front of mind for our organisation being focused on road safety.

Describe what road safety means to your organisation?

Road safety is the core of the business of Safe System Solutions Pty Ltd which offers a wide range of traffic engineering and design services The Safe System which underpins road safety and our organisation’s focus is identified as “Road trauma should not be accepted as the inevitable cost of transport. Within the Safe System model, if a mistake is made on the road the impact is severely reduced or negated by safer roads, safer vehicles, safer speeds and safer people.”

Regardless of where our people are located and the role they undertake, light vehicles travelling on public roads is identified as the highest safety risk faced by workers and contractors. This risk applies to both in working time, and in their private time.
