This week is the official launch of our latest roadworks safety scenario at our education centre Hazard Alley. The scenario developed in partnership with Ringway– the highway maintenance strategic service partner for Milton Keynes City Council.
The new scenario gives visitors the opportunity to discover the potential dangers of roadworks: how to keep safe by understanding site hazards; and the importance of following site rules like designated pedestrian routes and safe crossing locations. It includes an interactive quiz and for a fully immersive experience visitors get to wear Personal Protective Equipment.
The Roadworks Safety Scenario launches this month to join our education centre’s lifesaving learning programme including first aid, safe places to cross, shoplifting and bullying, fire safety, home safety, the choices and consequences of knife crime, in car, cycling and railway safety as well as water safety. The education centre is designed for primary school children and young people to learn how to keep themselves and others safe in daily life.
Clive Rillstone, Ringway Regional Director said-
“Our team are passionate about raising the positive profile of the highways industry, particularly the safety of both road users and site staff, and we were excited to have the opportunity to develop the scenario at Hazard Alley. We feel that our scenario makes a perfect addition to the aims of the Safety Centre with reference to road works and safe crossing.”
Maya Joseph-Hussain CEO of the Safety Centre said
“We’re thrilled to be launching our new innovative roadwork safety scenario that has been developed in partnership with our supporters Ringway. The scenario adds value to our pioneering safety education centre Hazard Alley, where children, young people and adults across the region have the opportunity to learn lifesaving safety education in a safe, immersive way”.
With thousands of visitors per year visiting Hazard Alley, Ringway will continue to work with the team at the Safety Centre to ensure that this initiative is an effective way to understand site safety.
