RoSPA appoints new road safety manager for Scotland

Steve Whitehouse has joined the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) to spearhead its road safety work in Scotland, in particular on occupational road risk.

Steve Whitehouse, road safety manager for Scotland at RoSPA

Whitehouse replaces Sandy Allan, who was in the road safety manager role on the Scotland team for five years, and brings more than three decades of experience running road safety campaigns, including having previously managed the Lancashire Partnership for Road Safety and worked for the Highways England Driving for Better Business initiative as the regional manager for the north west of England. Notable achievements include playing a key part in the rollout of ‘Bikeability’ Department for Transport scheme.

He said: “I am keen to get stuck in and develop RoSPA’s work, particularly around occupational road risk. It is estimated that up to a third of road accidents involve someone driving for work purposes. I believe that the work of the Scottish Occupational Road Safety Alliance (ScORSA) can be pivotal in reversing this trend.

“I am really looking forward to my new role and am excited about the challenges which lie ahead.”
