NRSPP Australia recognised with Prince Michael International Road Safety Award

21 November 2021

The National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) is an industry-led government funded program launched in 2014 which assists organisations to reduce workplace road trauma among their workforces and the broader community. The program has developed over 400 evidence based resources in collaboration with its diverse partnership base, which are made globally available at no expense through its website. A recent survey of its 275 partners found that 27% of those responding reported improvements in workplace road safety while 50% reported improved safety culture.

Delivered in partnership with the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) ,NRSPP is honoured to have received a 2021 Prince Michael of Kent International Road Safety Award.

The NRSPP was initially launched by HRH Prince Michael of Kent on the 5 May in 2014 in Melbourne as part of the Decade of Action Policy and Donor Forum.

In his letter to the NRSPP’s Independent Chair, Professor Barry Watson, HRH recalled the launch and noted his delight in being able to present the NRSPP with his award in recognition of its innovation and outstanding achievements in improving workplace road safety.

The HRH Prince Michael of Kent noted the importance of the NRSPP in its efforts to ensure the safe use of vehicles by those who drive for work purposes and the sharing of good practice through creating partnerships across industry, government and the academic sectors.
