The National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) offers a collaborative network for Australian organisations to build and implement effective road safety strategies in the workplace.
The program offers organisations the resources to improve road safety that best fit their individual operations and, at the same time, improve business productivity through less time and money lost through safety incidents.
The program is not a prescriptive approach but aims to complement existing safety legislation by providing access to a ‘knowledge bank’ from a diverse network of organisations to given them the resources to implement their own initiatives. The tools will help make the business case for organisations shifting their safety focus from 'having' to safety to secure a contract to 'wanting' to because it is simply good business.
Exploring the road safety benefits of direct vision
Project Purpose & Aims
Provide empirical research to address a research-gap around understanding the potential benefits of seeing vulnerable road users directly as opposed to indirectly i.e. through mirrors
Improve understanding of visual processing of information in a driving context
Establish the extent to which increased direct vision could reduce driver reaction times
Reduce the number of near misses and collisions between HGVs and vulnerable road users
