RTITB will be using next week’s Microlise Transport Conference to raise awareness of how training is vital in raising workplace road safety standards.

The transport training standards body will be holding a breakout presentation focusing on accident reduction, which will tackle the issues surrounding vehicle technology and vulnerable road users.

“Vulnerable road user casualty figures are disproportionally high when compared to other road user types,” says Richard Brewer, technical services executive at RTITB. “The presentation will promote responsible driver behaviour, and explore how training, coupled with road safety technology, can help to reduce risk.  This combined approach can offer the best solution for improving the safety of everyone.”

At the Microlise event, RTITB will be talking to visitors on its stand about its range of road safety training courses and displaying one of its training vehicles.

“We’re keen to ensure that people understand the direct, positive impact that RTITB training can have,” said MD Laura Nelson.

  • Microlise is being held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 18 May and tickets can be booked online. The free-to-attend event sees more than 1,000 delegates gather for the exhibition and a range of informative workshops and presentations from authority figures in the industry.
