Safety Seminar – Road Trauma Reduction in New Zealand

The Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS)  would like to invite members of the Transportation Group to join their CEO Claire Howe & colleagues to a FREE SEMINAR (and post-seminar discussion) about some exciting upcoming opportunities for Road Safety in New Zealand.

Claire will discuss opportunities the College is keen to share with all those working to reduce trauma in New Zealand. The aim is to support all stakeholders to maximise the collaborative impact we can all make on road trauma reductions.

Opportunities discussed will include the replication of some successful ACRS programs in other jurisdictions, including the potential to expand the New Zealand Chapter of the College. Also hear about the Australasian Road Safety Conference series, and plans to bring the event to New Zealand in the near future.
