Business champions commit to a decade of action.

17 May 2011

Many Driving for Better Business champions held or supported events to mark the launch of the Decade of Action for Road Safety. Among these were, Tesco, Michelin, Arval, Johnson&Johnson and Suckling Transport.

The importance of reducing the risk of injury on the road among those who drive for work is well understood by our business champions, and each has committed to continue to raise awareness of the importance of work-related road safety in the their communities.

The five pillars of the Global Plan for The Decade of Action include opportunities for the private sector to promote comprehensive policies and practices to reduce work-related road traffic injuries in the public, private and informal sectors, in support of internationally recognized standards for road safety management systems
and occupational health and safety. And also to operate and maintain vehicles that offer advanced safety technologies and high levels of occupant protection.

Case studies form our business champions give good examples of how to do this.
