Support “European Day Without A Road Death” on 19th September
On Wednesday 19th September, An Garda Síochána and the Road Safety Authority (RSA) will proudly support the third “European Day Without A Road Death” (Project EDWARD), an initiative organised by TISPOL, the Traffic Police network in Europe. On average 70 people are killed each day on Europe’s roads and although 2017 was the lowest number of road fatalities ever recorded in Ireland, none of us can afford to be complacent about road safety.
The aim of Project EDWARD is that no one should die on the roads of Europe on Wednesday 19th September 2018. So on 19th September, we are asking all road users to think– even for a few short minutes – about the risks you face, the risks you may pose to others and how you can go about reducing those risks. You have the power to make a real difference by making a simple choice - to behave as a responsible and safe road-user, every time you use the roads.

Save the date - HSA seminars on potential impacts of Brexit – November 1st and 28th
The Health & Safety Authority will host 2 seminars on the potential impacts of Brexit on Irish companies. The first event will be held in Athlone on November 1st and will focus primarily on the chemical industry in Ireland and the potential impacts that Brexit will have on this sector. The second event on November 28th, in Portlaoise, will focus on issues such as market surveillance, placing machinery on the market, transport and accreditation. Any company concerned about the potential impact of Brexit on how they do business and who wish to learn more should attend these events.
