New Toolbox Talks Out Now for National Safe Work Month:

  1. Heavy Vehicle: Empower Drivers 
  2. Light Vehicle: Drive Well & Driver Well Being
  3. Construction Truck Blind Spots
  4. Construction Truck Cyclists

Construction Truck Cyclists and Construction Truck blind spots are developed in collaboration with Victorian Department of Transport and Planning for predominately construction trucks but applicable to any truck operating in urban environments

NRSPP Director Jerome Carslake featured on Seven Sunrise regarding comments relating to a fatality where a lady exited her vehicle to confront a truck driver and stood in its blind spot and was killed. The fatal incident shattering numerous families as a result of the ripple effect. Sadly the incident illustrates the importance of such organisations as Amber Community and Injury Matters with the post-trauma support they offer for those affected by road related incidents.
