FACTUM is a SME founded in 1988 that focuses on traffic and mobility policies from the perspective of psychological and social sciences. The main objective is to develop and implement suitable instruments that make solid research, e.g. on human motives, viable. The targeted areas are approached under consideration of culture, lifestyle and life quality as those play a vital role. The expertise of FACTUM lies in qualitative and heuristic methodology (round-table discussions, focus-group interviews, in depth and narrative interviews, workshops).
Según la normativa vigente, los conductores tienen que renovar períodicamente el permiso de conducir, por lo que tienen que venir a realizar las pruebas médico - psicotécnicas. Cuando examinamos a los conductores, realizamos campañas de concienciación de lo importante que evitar las distracciones al volante, llevar cinturón de seguridad, conducir en buenas condiciones físicas y psiquicas, respetar señales, etc.
Road safety work in the EU has made great progress over recent years. Between 2001 and 2010, the number of fatalities on EU roads was reduced by a total of 43%. Between 2010 and 2013, it was reduced by a further 17%. However every road death is one too many - so we need to do more. The strategic target is to halve road deaths between 2010 and 2020 and also to start focusing EU efforts on reducing serious road traffic injuries. To achieve this goal, determined and joined-up action is needed from many actors at EU, national and local level.
Our organisation is actively committed to road safety and has implemented a number of initiatives across the business to improve safety for our colleagues and the general public. A great example of this is the use of telematics data from our onboard vehicle tracking system to report back vehicle speed and driver behaviour. Combined with a Group-wide policy and campaign reinforcing the law on UK road speed limits we have been able to effectively manage road safety across our organisation.
The Finnish Motor Insurers’ Centre (FMIC) is a cooperation body of motor insurance companies in Finland. Their joint traffic safety efforts are coordinated and supervised by the Traffic Safety Committee of Insurance Companies (VALT), a body appointed by the Board of the Finnish Motor Insurers’ Centre. Based on legislation (Act 24/2001) the FMIC organizes the investigation of road and cross-country traffic accidents and upkeeps the accident database. In Finland, every fatal road and cross-country accident is investigated in-depth and on-the-spot by multidisciplinary investigation teams.
