International Conference on Road safety: a responsibility of the company?

Paris, France, 20 June 2018 - 21 June 2018

The professional world is often the missing part of road safety campaigns. However, statistics bring us back to the reality that can’t be ignored: traffic crashes at work environment remains by far the first fatal risk of accident at work. However, there are many devices and methods to combat this scourge, starting from the organization of travel to the use of equipment and new technologies predicting the risk, through awareness and training of drivers to good practices. 

The aim of the Conference is to strengthen the debate on the role of the company in improving road safety. Investing in road safety in the company can have a very positive impact not only on reducing the number of deaths but also on its notoriety, its competitiveness and the creation of wealth.

The main axes of this conference are the following:

  • Axis 1: Regulations and developments favorable to the control of road risk in companies (sharing of experience, hearing of jurists and experts in comparative law, role of labor law and economic impact).
  • Axis 2: How to act within the company: Road Safety audit; adaptation of the work organization; awareness-raising actions; return on investment at the economic level. 
  • Axis 3: What «rebound» effects can be expected from corporate actions on overall driving behavior?

Experts, academics, institutional actors, professionals and NGO’s are attended to this Conference and will exchange knowledges and best practices.
