SoRSA would like to invite you to join a special Question Time webinar with experts from within the Safety industry.
The panel, whose experience ranges from local and strategic highways within client organisations and the private sector, will answer questions asked by you.
Please provide your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be taking questions on the day, but there is a chance that we will not get around to answering all questions, so the earlier you ask the better!
This is primarily for SoRSA members of any role or level.

I am a Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Senior Business Partner in Transport for London (TfL), providing advice to Surface Transport business areas. My road risk remit covers close working with teams involved in investment and delivery linked with TfL’s Vision Zero ambition; and ensuring that we realise maximum benefit in terms of reductions in people killed or seriously injured on London’s roads as a result of any schemes we deliver. I have recently set up a Road Risk Community of Expertise (CoE) within our SHE department which promotes the sharing of technical skills, such as safety data analysis. I developed a passion for reducing road risk while I was a Regional Operations Manager in TfL’s On-Demand Transport department. Seeing the practical road risk issues manifest through day-to-day operations made me realise how important strategic, long term, risk-based decisions are to reducing risk on our roads.
