Safe Drive Stay Alive shows for Chippenham-based business


Date: 5th June, 2017

Around 400 employees of Siemens Rail Automation are to benefit from a hard-hitting road safety presentation in Chippenham this week.

Safe Drive Stay Alive (Wiltshire and Swindon) is an initiative coordinated by Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service on behalf of partners including Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Council, Swindon Borough Council, Arval Ltd, Wiltshire Air Ambulance and Severn Major Trauma Network.

It uses powerful personal testimony and dramatic video footage to make the audience aware of the tragedy and suffering caused by road traffic collisions.

Firefighters, medics, police officers, bereaved parents and people who have been directly involved in road traffic collisions recount their stories, often in heart-breaking detail.

The team now works with Siemens and Network Rail to get the roadshow to as many of their staff as possible, and the next two shows are being held at the Neeld Hall on 7 June.

Ian Hopkins, Road Safety Manager at Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “Both Siemens Rail Automation and Network Rail have staff and sub-contractors who spend a lot of time travelling, both within our region and around the country, so the risk of being involved in a road traffic collision is far higher than for someone who only works in an office.

He added: “We are grateful to Siemens for commissioning these shows for their staff and for the additional, significant funding they have given us this year to help us deliver our annual road safety programme to Year 11 students across Wiltshire and Swindon.”

Andrew Stringer, Delivery Director (Chippenham) for Siemens, said: “We have seen the work that the Safe Drive Stay Alive partnership has done with Network Rail and we hope these hard-hitting presentations will educate our staff and help them to be safer when on the roads. We are pleased to give the Safe Drive team financial support for this year and hopefully this will be the start of a longer partnership for the future.”
