RoSPA launches new-look ORSA website for employers and at-work drivers

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is launching its revamped Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ORSA) website with updated features and information for people who drive for work.

The ORSA website - www.orsa.org.uk - has been given a facelift with a fresh new look and design and is set to go live today (Monday, January 12) with funding from the Department for Transport (DfT).

The new site provides practical support in the form of information, advice and direct links to a wide range of free resources, advice, case studies and research evidence to help employers understand and manage the risks faced, and created, by their staff when driving as part of their work.
 
It is also compatible with mobile devices and will meet the latest web standards, providing an improved user experience.

Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at RoSPA, said: “We are delighted to be launching the new-look ORSA website. It has been completely re-designed and updated to provide advice, information, guidance and resources to help keep individuals who drive for work safe on the road.

“About a third of deaths on the road involve someone driving for work, which is why it is so important to highlight and promote occupational road safety. We hope our new-look website will encourage organisations to effectively manage the risks faced by their employers while driving for work.”

The ORSA website was first launched in 2004 to facilitate and promote the work of the alliance.

ORSA, formed in 2002, brings together employers, trade unions, local authorities, police forces, safety organisations and professional and trade associations. It aims to raise awareness of work related road safety and to encourage businesses to manage at-work road risk more effectively.
