RSW activity ideas for organisations

QBE Insurance is pleased to support Brake. Visit our site>

Road Safety Week is an ideal opportunity to promote life-saving messages and show your commitment to road safety to employees and their families, customers, suppliers and your community. Many organisations use the Week to link existing activities to a national event, or as a springboard to launch year-round road safety programmes. Register to take part now!

Here are some ideas for activities in Road Safety Week to get you started:

Activities related to the theme

  • Design an internal comms or social media campaign around speed. 
  • Hold a children's colouring competition for children to create road safety messages related to speed.
  • Take part in Brake's Virtual Run and use speed as a way to be healthy and get some exercise.
