FORS teamed up with Gold member, O’Donovan Waste Disposal, for Road Safety Week to deliver an ‘Exchanging Places’ event, at St Bede’s School in Redhill.
The occasion aimed to raise awareness amongst students of what a driver really sees from behind the wheel, and provided them with the opportunity to learn about the relationship between cyclists, pedestrians and HGVs on roads.
Attending the event, Paul Wilkes, FORS Business Services Manager, said, “It was fantastic to see so many students engaging with the messages of Road Safety Week. O’Donovan Waste Disposal is a long-time FORS Gold member, and it is great to see them once again working with vulnerable road users to improve safety on our roads.”
O’Donovan Managing Director, Jacqueline O’Donovan, said, “We were delighted to take part in Road Safety Week this year, especially having a presence in schools. It’s vital that we educate children about road safety and, as a progressive company known for bold decisions, we are keen to ensure we are making the best choices to help further protect vulnerable road users – and this includes an education process for the younger generation. As part of our relationship with FORS, we continue to make significant, ongoing investments in our fleet and drivers to ensure that we are in the best possible position to do this.”
