National Slow Down Day 26th/27th May 2017 / ESB Road Safety Bureau
An Garda Síochána will conduct a national speed enforcement operation between 7am, Friday 26th May and 7am, Saturday 27th May 2017.
2015 in terms of road safety saw one of the lowest numbers of fatalities on record; 162 people died on Irish roads. Sadly, in 2016, this figure rose and 188 people lost their lives on our roads.
Excessive or inappropriate speed is a major contributory factor in one third of fatal road traffic collisions. The higher the speed, the greater the likelihood is of a collision happening and the more severe the outcome of that collision. Rule of thumb
1% Reduction in Speed =
• 2% reduction in collisions
• 3%reduction in serious injury
• 4% reduction in fatalities
ESB Road Safety Bureau asks you to support National Slow Down Day: • Respect the posted speed limit
• Adjust your speed to road, traffic and weather conditions
• LAW – You must be able to stop in the distance you see to be clear
It goes without saying this is not only for one day, but for every day, whether driving for business or private purposes. BE A BETTER THINKING DRIVER

Round 2! Group Health, Safety & Wellbeing policy review /
What’s happened so far?
Back in April, many of you took the time to share insightful and constructive feedback about the first batch of safety policies we posted for review. A huge thank you goes to everyone who took part. Second set ready to go!
So, as promised, we’re back again – looking for your advice on the final set of policies between now and June 16th. Do our safety policies hit the mark? What should we adjust? What needs changing? Go to: Health & Safety Policies to get started.
After June 16th, all comments will be reviewed and relevant updates made. For more detail…
If you’d like to know more about this process, who’s been involved so far and how you can play your part, you’ll find all that information here.
Thank you for taking the time to make this important contribution to Safety in ESB.
