RYDA is all about making our roads a safer place and that starts with creating a safe environment at our workshops.
Safety is everyone’s responsibility. While our Program Coordinators and Day Managers make the important decisions about how the Speed & Stopping demonstration is set up, they do not have their eyes everywhere and cannot know all the conditions that could endanger participants. Therefore, our facilitators and volunteers are important ‘sensors’ for potential harm and incident reporting.
Regardless of the new or usual set up to a demonstration area. We ask, that anyone on site reports any safety concerns they may have to the Program Coordinator/Day Manager in charge so it may be quickly resolved. As professional drivers, advice from our Speed & Stopping facilitators is highly valued and we ask that you conduct a thorough check of the area before delivering your session – this should take into account variables such as weather conditions.
Please complete this revision course on the Speed and Stopping Health and Safety requirements which will help you identify areas for concern in the future. It is not possible to cover every scenario in this short course so each workshop must be individually assessed.
