Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ORSA)

What are you doing/aiming to do for road safety? 

Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ORSA) aims to increase the number of representative organisations which are committed to the ORSA core statement - namely that 'employers should manage at-work road risk within the framework that they should already have in place for managing all other occupational health and safety risks'. Reducing work-related road casualties is playing a significant part in helping to reach the target for road casualty reduction set by the UK Government.
 
Membership is constantly growing and is currently 300. ORSA aims to double membership over the next three years.
 
A new offshoot of ORSA is being formed. The Scottish Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ScORSA) to promote membership more widely in Scotland.
 
Companies will be encouraged to commit to road safety actions through promoting the ORSA website in conference presentations, reports at meetings, individual contacts with companies, trade associations, insurers and others, links on other websites.
 
ORSA will have dialogue with organisations to encourage a commitment to a cycle of continuous improvement in road safety performance, ensuring that this approach is underpinned by a proactive, positive road safety culture led by all senior managers with full workforce involvement.
ORSA actively supports its members, disseminates road safety information and facilitates the sharing of members' best practice. It helps all employers to develop a systematic approach to managing occupational road risk that is appropriate to their business.
 
Physical meetings of ORSA members are arranged annually.
