As restrictions ease and more businesses reopen, the council’s road safety team is encouraging local businesses that require their staff to drive to attend the latest online free ‘Mind Your Business’ event.
Mind Your Business is a partnership scheme between Wirral Council and various transport related partners to encourage people who are driving for work to be safer on the road.
Whether you are a taxi company and have been operating over the last year or are a new business opening in line with government restrictions, as the number of vehicles increase on the roads, the road safety team and their partners are available to share their top safety tips.
The online seminar, hosted by Agilysis and funded by the Road Safety Trust, will start at 10:30am on Wednesday 28 April and includes various guest speakers including Dan Campsall, Chair of Agilysis Limited and David Davies, Executive Director at PACTS.
The full schedule of speakers include:
- Welcome from Dan Campsall, Chair of Agilysis Limited
- What kills who on the road - David Davies, Executive Director, PACTS
- How’s my driving: A case study from a HMD business user
- Taking care of cyclists - Duncan Dollimore, Policy Director, Cycling UK
- E-cargo bikes - Paul Leatherbarrow, Road Safety Officer, Wirral Council
- Changing traffic and the gig-economy - Bruce Walton, CTO, Agilysis Limited
‘How’s My Driving’ – a road safety service that introduced branded stickers for the public to contact and leave their feedback on the driving of those displaying the badge – will also be speaking at the event and businesses, who have a fleet of approximately thirty vehicles, have the opportunity to sign up to their twelve-month membership for free.
As part of the membership, badges are supplied for your businesses vehicles to help act as a reminder of road safety and positively influence their driving style.
