Workplace Road Safety Leadership

Online course for organisations whose staff undertake work-related travel

Course aims

Hundreds of thousands of Australians use a vehicle for work every day, but tragically, travelling on our roads is by far the most significant contributor to work-related injury and death in our country.

Workplace Road Safety Leadership aims to raise awareness of road safety as an important work health and safety (WHS) issue and to give workplaces the essential knowledge, information, and tools to help prevent workplace deaths and injuries on our roads.
