Employers - be at the heart of RSW!
Road Safety Week is an ideal opportunity to promote life-saving messages and show your commitment to road safety to employees and their families, customers, suppliers and your local community.
To get your free online action pack of tips, ideas and downloadable resources, register today!
"Getting involved in Road Safety Week really helps us generate awareness about road safety year-round and get the message across to employees and our community. There are so many ways to take part - we would urge all companies to do so and help make roads safer."Chris Hughes, risk manager, Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions
Why take part?
Hundreds of employers use the Week to train staff, raise awareness, or partner with local schools, community groups and road safety professionals to promote safer roads. For example, last year Yorkshire-based firm BigChange ran a week of activities for staff, including an event with racing car driver Nic Hamilton, pictured top right. Many employers use the Week as a springboard to launch year-round road safety programmes.
How to get involved
Register for Road Safety Week 2018 by using our online form, and you'll receive a free online action pack with lots more advice, ideas and resources linked to the 2018 theme Bike Smart. These include guidance sheets, facts sheets, infographics and interactive tools for both adults and children.
Watch our webinar to hear from companies that have previously taken part in Road Safety Week and get ideas on running successful activities and communication campaigns in your organisation and community.
Display a giant banner
Raise awareness about road safety at your office, yard, or in your local community by sponsoring a giant Road Safety Week banner (5m x 1m). Banners include your logo and a message chosen by you from a list of options. You can display the banner on your building, at an event or even donate it to a local school or community group.
For more information and to see this year's Bike Smart designs, see our banners page.
Why not: team up with suppliers, other companies or road safety professionals? Most designs have plenty of room for partner organisation logos too and you can display them at various sites.
On your bike!
This year we're encouraging as many companies as possible to take part in our Virtual Cycle.
It's a great way to get all your staff involved to raise awareness and money. You can simply set up a static bike in the office or a public space and get as many people as possible to take to the saddle. You can also join one of our national events at various locations across the UK.
For more information and other fundraising ideas check out our page here.
Make some noise
Whatever you’re planning for Road Safety Week, make sure you let others know about it! There will be plenty of graphics and tools for social media in your action pack, but also use our we're taking part (yn Gymraeg) and we ♥ Road Safety (yn Gymraeg) posters to start the conversations now.
Also, please tell us about it by completing our online registration form. This helps us assess the impact of the Week, and we may also be able to offer you additional support, such as helping you achieve media coverage.
Why not: promote participation to colleagues, local groups and educators by using our e-flyers? You can use these on social media or through bulletins too. You can also print them off and put them on display.
