Workshop Activity Guides
The Activity Guide sets out how each activity is designed to run, with information about what the facilitators and participants need to do at each stage, how long it will take, and what equipment is needed. The Activity Guide also gives the learning outcomes for each activity and information about how to assess it has been successfully delivered.
The Workshop Facilitator's Notes contain the practical experiences learnt from running 12 pilot workshops. They should give you an indication of the type of discussion which emerged from the activities and how to guide them towards the learning objectives for each session.
Young Drivers at Work Report
The Young Drivers at Work Report (PDF 728kb) includes the results of RoSPA's project designed to get a better understanding of the risks faced, and created, by young (17-24 years) drivers at work and was published in March 2009. This freely available document will help employers and road safety professionals to better understand the risks for young at-work drivers, give guidance on how those risks can be reduced and what help employers want.
Young Drivers at Work
The RoSPA Young Driver's At Work project was a two year project run between 2008 and 2010. The project was conducted with support from the Department for Transport's road safety partnership grant and with the help of a working group including the DfT, DSA, Buckinghamshire and Lancashire County Councils, Birmingham City Council, Roadsafe, and Tesco.com.
The project has since been awarded a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.
This series of web pages is an online toolkit and includes an Activity Guide and Facilitator's Notes, which will equip you with the information you need to run one of the workshops yourself, and to understand the concepts behind it.
RoSPA is also offering this workshop as an in-company training solution.
The first phase was a research project. The scope was to get a better understanding of the risks faced, and created, by young (17-24 years) drivers at work, including:
- the views of employers on how well the present system of driver training and testing prepares young people for the sort of driving they do for work
- whether employers would recognise and make use of a 'driving for work qualification' when recruiting or managing young staff who drive as part of their job, and
- if so, what should be included in such a qualification or training programme.
The results were published in a report in March 2009. Based on this research RoSPA developed a Young Drivers at Work Workshop. The aims of the workshop are to:
- Improve the attitudes and behaviour of young at-work drivers
- Inform the development of organisations' road risk policies
- Facilitate the consultation of the whole organisation about work-related road safety policies and gauge how well they are followed
