Queensland Road Safety awards and community engagement workshop



The Queensland Road Safety awards recognise and honour the outstanding efforts of individuals and groups who have initiated projects or programs to improve safety on Queensland roads.

The awards are a joint initiative of the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety Queensland (CARRS-Q) and RACQ, and are also actively supported by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, and the Queensland Police Service. This free event, produced and managed by CARRS-Q, will involve representatives from government, industry and the general community working together and sharing ideas, to facilitate networking and the work shopping of road safety issues, projects and solutions.

This event follows the successful workshops previously held in 2010 and 2011 and answers the call made by community groups for useful, relevant and worthwhile information which can be used by them, both independently and in conjunction with assistance from CARRS-Q and industry representatives, to enhance the effectiveness and relevance of their community road safety programs.

This event will also educate and inform key community representatives responsible for community road safety activities and through this, information presented at the event could be embedded into future programs, policies and projects.

Representatives from community and not-for-profit organisations, State and local government agencies, schools, local businesses and individuals involved in community road safety initiatives will find this workshop beneficial.

Travel grants

To ensure that many representatives of community and industry road safety programs can attend this workshop, travel grants will be available to assist regional delegates with the cost of travel and accommodation.

These grants will be made available to delegates who live more than 200km away from the venue, and who meet the eligibility requirements. It is anticipated that more applications will be received than available grants so a selection process will be applied to all applicants.

Applications for travel grants close Friday 9 August 2013.
