Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Mean Business

3 November 2009

Following last year's successful We Mean Business programme, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Road Safety Patnership is again organising a series of free, local Driving for Work Road Safety courses, including free lunch and refreshments.

20 deaths result on the UK's roads each week from work-related traffic accidents, that's almost 3 people each day and 1000 people killed annually. The best way to manage your employees at-work road safety is by developing, and implementing, a road safety policy.

With the help of the Highways Agency, a short, 3 hour course is being provided for businesses at a variety of dates and locations across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough between November 30th 2009 and February 26th 2010.

By attending one of the courses, you will be able to illustrate your commitment to the importance of road safety at work and help ensure that your company is not unwittingly exposed by the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide ACT 2007 in the event of employee road accidents. You will also be able to see and hear of the benefits other businesses have gained through taking employee road safety seriously.

The courses are available at the following times and locations:

  1. November 30th, Cambridge, The Moller Centre - 9.30am - 1.30pm
  2. December 11th, Huntingdon, The Marriot Hotel - 9.30am - 1.30pm
  3. January 22nd, Peterborough, East Of England Conference Centre - 9.30am - 1.30pm
  4. January 29th, Cambourne, The Belfry Hotel - 9.30am - 1.30pm
  5. Feb 12th, Abington, The Temple Conference Centre - 9.30am - 1.30pm
  6. February 26th, March, The Oliver Cromwell Hotel - 9.30am - 1.30pm
