NRSPP receives International Road Safety AwardMonash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC) congratulates the National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) for receiving a 2021 Prince Michael International Road Safety Award.

MUARC has been the proud host of the NRSPP since September 2020. The Program was launched by HRH Prince Michael of Kent in 2014 to bring together businesses, researchers and government in an industry-led collaborative network.

In his letter to the NRSPP’s Independent Chair, Professor Barry Watson, HRH Prince Michael of Kent recalled the launch and noted his delight in being able to present the NRSPP with his award in recognition of its innovation and outstanding achievements in improving workplace road safety.

The HRH Prince Michael of Kent noted the importance of the NRSPP in its efforts to ensure the safe use of vehicles by those who drive for work purposes and the sharing of good practice through creating partnerships across industry, government and the academic sectors.

Independent Chair, Professor Barry Watson said “Since the NRSPP’s launch, the program has grown significantly and has had thousands of organisations and individuals draw on its resources especially over the past 12 months since its partnership commenced with Monash University. The power of the program is the diversity of our partners and their recognition that road safety is not a competitive advantage but a shared advantage.”

The program is guided by an industry-led Steering Committee and has a partnership base exceeding 130 industry and government organisations across public and private sectors.

“I would like to acknowledge Program Director Jerome Carslake for leading NRSPP since its inception and to the many program partners, especially our foundation ones, organisations, businesses and other stakeholders who have contributed to its success,” said Independent Chair Professor Barry Watson.
