Driving for Work - New Research

14 July 2011

Poppy Husband - the author of Devon County Council's report, 'A review of the evidence on road safety initiatives for individuals at work: implications for practice', presented her findings to a Boardroom Round Table attended by ten business champions and a further 20 invited guests held in London.

The report, which is the third conducted as part of Devon's Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project with the University of Plymouth, examines evidence regarding whether road safety initiatives increase work-related drivers' safety on the roads, and provides recommendations about how services and products may be developed in order to increase their effectiveness.

Her findings were endorsed by the businesses at the meeting which was on of a series of business briefings being sponsored by  Driving for Better Business partner GreenRoad
