Firms in Grampian have been invited to attend a free seminar in Aberdeen next month, which may lead to changes in safety signage on roads in the area.

The Driving Risks at Work event is hosted by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and will assist businesses in decreasing risks to their workers and others. It is scheduled for Wednesday 14th September at the Aberdeen Douglas Hotel.

Kathleen Braidwood, RoSPA Scotland's road safety officer, said: "With 'at-work drivers' involved in around a third of crashes, it makes good business sense to manage employees’ road risk effectively."

Ms Braidwood admitted that small firms face challenges in regards to investing in safety, which is why the seminar will be helpful.
