RoSPA Road Safety Seminar 2013

Thursday, 07 March 2013

The 78th Annual RoSPA Road Safety Seminar will be held on the 7th March 2013 at Conference Aston, Birmingham.

With road fatalities showing their first increase since 2003, and with significantly reduced resources available for road safety, the RoSPA Road Safety Seminar will examine the potential for new technologies, engagement methods, and ways of working.

The day’s programme will explore the following themes:

  • The power of using social media to spread essential road safety messages
  • The benefits of adopting black box technology to record driver behaviour – especially young and at-work drivers – monitoring areas such as braking, acceleration and vehicle location
  • The implications that the new public health framework – centred on the new Health and Wellbeing Boards – will have on the setting and delivery of road safety objectives in England.

Guest speakers include Dr Adrian Phillips, joint director of public health at Birmingham Public Health and Birmingham City Council, who will focus on road safety and the new public health framework; Katherine Goodwin, senior strategic marketing manager at Scottish Government Marketing Unit, who will discuss social media and its use in road safety marketing in Scotland; Mark Bennett, technical support manager at Britax, on how the company uses different marketing techniques and social media to educate the public on child car seat safety; and Andy Price, practice leader - Motor Fleet, Zurich Risk Engineering UK, who will speak on black box technology with regards to at-work drivers.
