Road Safety Week is an annual initiative coordinated by Brake, the road safety charity and this year Thorneycroft Solicitors is showing its support with a week-long schedule of activities to help both staff and members of the local community step up for safe streets.
Between November 18th-24th the firm will host a number of activities and initiatives to help increase awareness of various aspects relating to road safety.
On November 20th, Andrew Drewary, of Road Safety Smart, will present a lunchtime seminar discussing the dangers of fatigue whilst driving.
Head of the employment law & HR department, Nicola Clarke, will give an insight into the legal implications for businesses with employees who may be susceptible to driver fatigue.
Local business owners will be invited to attend this invaluable seminar at Thorneycroft’s head office in Macclesfield.
On November 22nd, staff will learn more about what to do if you are the first person to arrive at the scene of a motorcycle accident – courtesy of Matt Bill from Biker Down Derbyshire and Tom Rowlands from Upright Derbyshire.
The catastrophic injury team will share daily reminders and facts with members of the firm relating to improving road safety.
Mark Belfield, a director of Thorneycroft Solicitors and head of the catastrophic injury department will be attending a local primary school to judge a road safety picture competition, with a prize to be awarded to the winner courtesy of the firm.
Thorneycroft Solicitors will end the week with a ‘dress down’ day and a ‘bake sale’ with all funds raised being donated to Brake in support of the amazing work that it does.
This week of activity continues the commitment shown by Thorneycroft Solicitors to all aspects of road safety, and it follows on from its first motorcycle safety and awareness event, Ride 2 Arrive, which it hosted earlier this year.
