NTC reminder for discussion paper

Submissions for the A Corporate Approach to Transport Safety discussion paper will close this Friday, 30 September and the National Transport Commission (NTC) has issued a reminder for those wanting to comment.

The discussion paper was released in August 2011. It explores how the existing corporate commitment to workplace safety can contribute to achieving the National Road Safety Strategy targets.

The purpose of the discussion paper is to stimulate a conversation about how corporate initiatives can contribute to improving road safety within the wider community.

During the public consultation period, the NTC held a series of public forums around Australia. The forums included case studies on organisations that have successfully implemented road safety initiatives to improve safety and enhance their business.

“The safety culture of companies influences the way their employees, customers and suppliers use the road network,” said NTC Chief Executive, Nick Dimopoulos.

“We’d like input from individual companies, industry bodies and other interested parties on how we can develop a national initiative that uses this influence to make our roads safer.”

“This includes input on how such an initiative would be governed and how we can ensure it has credibility and delivers genuine safety benefits.”
“Once consultation closes, we’ll use the feedback from submissions and the forums as well as continue to consult with stakeholders to guide the development of this national initiative.”
