How to stay safe on the road
It’s your responsibility
• Whether you’re a driver or passenger, you
are responsible for your own personal safety
• This means:
– ensuring vehicles are roadworthy
– using seat belts and other safety
equipment properly
– making sure the driver is fit to drive
– driving with care and attention
– helping the driver wherever you can
• There are 9 deaths everyday on UK roads
• 1 in 2 drivers on company business are involved
in a collision every year
• Safety is not just about drivers – passengers
are responsible too
• Know the risks and stay safe
• Safety is our No.1 priority
• Network Rail is committed to the
welfare of those who drive to work
and those who drive as part of
their job
• Network Rail has developed a
driver coaching scheme
– individual driver assessments
– training
– online learning
• Make sure you’re switched on the
minute you get into the vehicle
• Get enough sleep if you’re
driving the next day
• Don’t miss breakfast
• Stay focused
• Remember, it’s not just your
welfare that you’re responsible for
• Be prepared for all types of weather
Tiredness and well-being
• It’s obvious, but make sure the driver takes
these precautions:
– regular breaks. Don’t fight it, stop!
– extra care if you are sleeping badly
– share the driving
• Everyone in the car is responsible
– don’t lark around or distract the driver
– only ever use a hands-free kit to make or take a call
– only take a call if it’s absolutely necessary
• Smoking is not permitted in company vehicles
Use the safety equipment
• Many neck injuries can be avoided if drivers and
passengers adjust their head restraints properly
• Wear your seat belt, front and back
• Ensure all passengers are belted-up too
• It’s the drivers responsibility to make sure
they follow the rules
• The limit is a limit, not a target
• 30mph in a 30 zone may be
too fast!
• Manage your speed according to
the weather and road conditions.
Stay within the speed limits
• Keep your speed down around
schools and residential areas
• In rural areas, match your
speed to the road conditions
Park right
• Everyone in the vehicle is responsible for its
safety, including passengers
• Reverse park as it is safer
– always guide the driver back from outside
the vehicle. This simple act will reduce the
likelihood of an accident
• Slow down at access points
• Be sensible about where you park the vehicle
• Make sure it’s safe and secure at all times
P
To sum up…
• There are some simple steps that we can all
take to avoid accidents
• How many of us would pass our driving
test today?
• Road safety is as important as track safety
• Look out for the ‘Dos and Don’ts’ booklets
• If you don’t feel confident, ask your line manager
if you can take the driver coaching scheme

Notes de l'éditeur

  1. Driving a vehicle is the single most dangerous thing we do at work. 95% of all collisions are caused by human error Every day nine people die on UK roads and 90 are seriously injured
  2. 300 people a year are killed because someone has fallen asleep at the wheel Make sure the driver takes these precautions: take a 15 minute break every two hours tell your manager if you are sleeping badly (because of a new baby, stress etc.) share the driving with a colleague drink strong coffee or another high caffeine drink be aware – if you are fighting it, find a safe place for a break turning up the radio or winding down the window doesn’t work if you’re too tired to drive Use of mobile phones Under no circumstances can drivers use their mobile phones Using your mobile phone as a passenger is distracting to the driver
  3. 20% of rear impact crashes result in neck injuries The top of the restraint should be level with the top of your head It should be no more than two inches from the back of your head Front seat belts save more than 2,500 lives a year A crash at 30mph can result in unbuckled rear seat passengers hurtling forwards with a force of 30-60 times their body weight This kills around 40 front seat passengers every year
  4. Don’t park in very narrow roads opposite driveways, entrances and junctions obstructing other road users lock it every time you leave it – even if it’s only for a minute keep valuables out of sight park in a safe, well lit place
