This month there are a series of free ‘Driving for Work’ seminars, run by the Road Safety Authority, the Health and Safety Authority and An Garda Síochána. They are designed to help employers put in place safe Driving for Work Risk Management practices.
The first will be held in October with the first taking place during Irish Road Safety Week on Wednesday 9 October in the Connacht Hotel in Galway.
Driving for work involves risks not only for the driver but also for fellow workers, members of the public and road-users, especially vulnerable road-users such as pedestrians and cyclists. Employers, managers and supervisors must, by law, manage the risks that employees face and create when they drive for work. The seminars will be of particular interest to organisations and companies, big and small, whose employees drive on the road as part of their work in either a company vehicle or their own vehicle.
These free half day seminars are designed to help business owners, managers and supervisors understand how effective management of work-related road risks can keep employees safe on the roads and benefit the bottom line. More details are available on www.drivingforwork.ie
The seminars will take place in the following locations.
Wednesday 9th October The Connacht Hotel, Dublin Road, Galway City
Wednesday 23rd October The Killeshin Hotel, Dublin Road, Portlaoise, Co. Laois
Thursday 24th October Green Isle Hotel, Newlands Cross, Dublin 22
