Our primary concern as road safety professionals within Neath Port Talbot is the safety of all road users. We provide advice and guidance for pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and motorcyclists, as well as teaching notes and class activities for educational professionals.
One main objective for the team in advancing child road safety education is to advise and support parents, carers, pre-school staff and teachers on both best practice and the resources that are available to them. We encourage school governors and teachers to include safety education within the context of their normal classroom work, whilst demonstrating how road safety can be integrated into the curriculum.
Driver education and adult education are also areas in which the road safety team will be able to give considerable help and advice, working with local employers to ensure the safety of staff while using the road and managing their occupational road risk. (see training)
Support across all age ranges will include the provision of resources, produced by the Authority or obtained from other organisations, and training for staff on their use
