Ringway | Interactive road safety scenario opens at Hazard Alley
Ringway, as the highway maintenance strategic service partner for Milton Keynes City Council, have teamed up with the region’s leading safety education charity the Safety Centre, to develop a ‘Roadworks Safety Scenario’ at the charity’s education centre Hazard Alley.
The Safety Centre is the region’s leading interactive and immersive safety education charity which specialises in teaching children, young people and adults how to stay safe in everyday situations using realistic learning experiences in Milton Keynes and across the region.
The Roadworks Safety Scenario opens on 10 May to become part of the Centre’s safety education tour and will provide a platform for visitors to discover the potential dangers of roadworks: how to keep safe by understanding site hazards; and the importance of adhering to site rules such as following designated pedestrian routes and safe crossing locations. It includes an interactive quiz and for a fully immersive experience, PPE is provided.
“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.” Clive Rillstone, Ringway Regional Director.
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, 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.
