Singapore Road Safety Award 2016

 
INTRODUCTION

1. The Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC) introduced the Road Safety Award in 2013 to recognize the efforts of companies and individuals who have contributed to a safer road in Singapore. This year, the SRSC will be presenting the “Singapore Road Safety Awards 2016” in the final quarter of 2017. There will be 5 categories of awards, namely:

  1. A. Road Safety Award for Companies with Heavy Goods Vehicle Fleet
  2. B. Road Safety Award for Companies with Bus Fleet
  3. C. Road Safety Award for Companies with Motorcycle Fleet
  4. D. Road Safety Award for Safe Vocational Driver/Motorcyclist
  5. E. Road Safety Award for Most Improved Vocational Driver/ Motorcyclist

 

2. The SRSC has increased the award categories over the years. This year, we have added the safe and the most improved vocational motorcyclist award under category D and E respectively. We encourage companies who employ motorcyclists to carry out any forms of duties including but not limited to despatch, delivery, inspection etc., to nominate them for the award. Motorcyclists have for many years been over represented in fatal and serious injury accidents, we hope these new awards will encourage employers to pay greater attention and invest more to protect the safety of their motorcyclists on the road.

3. The qualification period for all five awards shall be from 1 Jan 2016 to 31 Dec 2016. Participating companies are requested to download the application form at the bottom of this page and submit the softcopy of the application in excel format to irenegoh@srsc.org.sg and mail the signed printed copy, together with supporting documents to SRSC Secretariat, attention to Ms Irene Goh, by Monday, 17 July 2017.
