The ACT is a supporting organisation of Road Safety Week 2021 to represent the cycling industry and encourage road safety for all who use them.

Why is road safety important for employers?

  • Many road deaths involve a vehicle being driven for work
  • Road crashes have a devastating effect on families and communities
  • Work vehicles also cause pollution
  • Pollution from traffic causes respiratory illnesses and other diseases
  • Active travel such as walking and cycling is good for the nation's health and good for the planet
  • Road crashes cost the UK economy around £36 billion every year.

 

Why take part in Road Safety Week?

By taking part in Road Safety Week, you can show that you are a responsible employer who puts people first and cares about their safety. Whether your employees drive for work or for personal use, it's a great opportunity to show staff, customers, suppliers and the wider community that road safety is embedded in your culture.
