This webinar explores the experience of WorleyParsons Elevating road safety to a corporate and community priority. The organisations went above and beyond what is expected and took the approach globally.

When WorleyParsons identified regular road crashes it made road safety its most critical employee health and safety risk, it took global and local action. Based on the recognised ‘5 pillar’ approach to road safety, the company introduced road safety initiatives across its global operations while ensuring they remained relevant to local projects.

WorleyParsons resulting action plan – Our Road Safety Initiative is underpinned by the 5 pillars of the Road Safety Commitment Program:

  1. Road Safety Management,
  2. Safer Roads and Mobility,
  3. Safer Vehicles,
  4. Safe Road Users and
  5. Post-Crash Response

Supported by internal communication strategies that ensured road safety messages were embedded in safety practices, WorleyParsons’ road safety efforts reduced crash rates by 36 per cent in just one year.

The company also took a wider view, making improving road safety across the community a key tenet of its corporate social responsibility program and taking the lead on or volunteering engineering expertise to local road safety programs.
