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.
Respect Traffic Controllers
The NRSPP Respect Traffic Controllers campaign focuses on humanising traffic controllers and aims to increase road user’s understanding and empathy. We want to promote safe interactions between the public and traffic controllers. Our goal is to minimise abuse directed at traffic controllers because they are here to make our roads safer.
