NRSW for partners

We’re coming up to National Road Safety Week in New Zealand (9-15 May) and Australia (15-22 May).  The week gives you a great opportunity to celebrate your partnership with RSE and highlight the importance of the work we are doing together through activations and notifications to staff and clients.  Here are a few ideas you could adopt to promote how your organisation and RSE are working together to create safer roads for all.

STAFF EDUCATION: Talk to the experts about teaching teenagers how to drive (WEBINAR)

It’s the moment many dread when their teenager bursts through the doors with a shiny set of L plates in their hands.  For many the question is, where to start.  We’re here to help answer that question with a special webinar designed for staff and friends of our partners.  We’ll have one of our top driving instructors on hand to give tips and advice and answer questions.  This is a tangible way that the staff of our major partners can benefit directly from the RYDA partnership.  The 45 minute webinar will take on Tuesday, 17 May at 1 pm (Sydney time).  Forward this link to invite your team to attend: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_7mn1bNSjSlm8Vk2xL4veWQ

Your team doesn’t have to be in the office to get engaged with Road Safety Week.  Why not brighten up your video conferences with a yellow ribbon background.  Download the tile here.

PROMOTING ROAD SAFETY: Jazz up your email signature

PROMOTING ROAD SAFETY: Jazz up your email signature

Using the national road safety week assets designed by Yellow Ribbon committees in both countries, we’ve created an email signature which promotes road safety week and your partnership with RSE.  Download the assets here:  AUS  |  NZ

If you’d like to make any changes, we can send you the psd files or make adjustments for you.  Email brooke@rse.org.au if you’d like to adjust the banner.

STAFF ENGAGEMENT: Kick off your next team meeting with a fun Kahoot! challenge

STAFF ENGAGEMENT: Kick off your next team meeting with a fun Kahoot! challenge

As part of our kit of tools we send to teachers to help students revisit the things they learn at RYDA, we’ve created a fun road safety quiz.  Are your team brave enough to go up against RYDA students in our road safety quiz challenge?  This is a great way to start a team meeting as it’s played quickly on hand-held devices so it can be played anywhere.  To play, staff will need to download and open the Kahoot app on their device or go to www.kahoot.it on their PC, enter the game pin: 05076702 and choose a screen name.  From there it’s game on – the highest score will go to the quickest finger with the right answer.  If you ask the team to use your company name/initials in their screen name, we’ll be able to crown the overall champion across all our partners.

PROMOTING ROAD SAFETY:  Tie it in a bow

PROMOTING ROAD SAFETY: Tie it in a bow

A simple and effective way your staff and your fleet drivers can stand in solidarity with those who have been injured or killed in road crashes and, importantly, show a commitment to actively protecting all road users is to tie a yellow ribbon to their vehicle during National Road Safety Week.  Parners may wish to have a bowl of ribbons available at the reception desk with a sign encouraging staff and visitors to take one and promote road safety week on the roads.  Share snaps on social media #yellowribbon #roadsafetyweek and don’t forget to tag us in @rydaroadsafety.

STAFF ENGAGEMENT: Host a

STAFF ENGAGEMENT: Host a "yellow" themed morning tea

Put on a yellow themed morning tea or set up yellow lolly jars in the staff room.  Invite staff to wear yellow to work on a chosen day during road safety week.  We’ve also had a lot of fun in the past with photo booths.  See how our partners have embraced the yellow in years gone by.

STAFF ACTIVITY: Carpark vehicle health check

STAFF ACTIVITY: Carpark vehicle health check

This fun, practical activity was sent to teachers to share with students during the pandemic lockdowns.  It gave students students an opportunity to get a little sunshine and fresh air as they teamed up with an iso-mate (Mum, Dad or sibling) to do a health check on the family car.   It’s also a way of sharing with your team some of the great work your organisation is doing in supporting safer drivers.  Why not ask your staff to buddy up with a team mate and perform carpark health checks on each other’s vehicles.  This activity could be undertaken during set times across road safety week.  Take some photos and tag #NRSW #RYDA #SaferDrivers #SaferVehicles

The activity features step by step instructions, a printable checklist and bonus points activity.  Access the activity here

STAFF ACTIVITY: What is your car trying to tell you?

STAFF ACTIVITY: What is your car trying to tell you?

Here’s another fun activity we sent to our students to keep them engaged during isolation.  The activity asks participants to identify as many dashboard warning lights as they can – becoming familiar with the car’s safety features, basic mechanical upkeep and warning signs helps ensure our vehicle is in the best condition possible.

You could distribute the quiz to staff and offer a reward for the fastest return of the most correct answers or you could even hold a pre-meeting ice-breaker Kahoot! quiz to test everyone’s knowledge.  Here are the resources you’ll need:  Access the staff handout here (note, the handout was written for our students and refers to using their car manual as a guide – we’ll make it trickier for the adults and see what they know without looking) |  Access the judge’s answer sheet here  |  Access the Kahoot! quiz here.
