With another school year just around the corner, at the Healthcare and Transport Services (HATS) Group, we’re busy preparing our fleet of specialist drivers and vehicles ready for the new term this September.
As part of our transport network, at HATS, we help to provide SEN and mainstream home to school transport to more than twenty Local Authorities and Shires in Greater London. And as part of that service, one of our most important duties is to help keep passengers and school children as safe as possible.
Whilst the UK’s transportation system is one of the safest in the world, at HATS we’re always looking for new ways to further improve our services and make our services as safe and reliable as possible.
In an attempt to raise awareness for both safe travel in the UK and beyond, we’ve recently started to support the #SaveKidsLives campaign coordinated by the UN Global Road Safety Collaboration. It’s a great cause which aims to put a stop to child road deaths around the world, and one I’m proud to back.
#SaveKidsLives calls for Governments from around the world to commit to take action at the Global High Level Conference on Road Safety in Brasilia in November 2015. The campaign highlights the plight of children on the roads and aims to save lives on the roads for years to come.
‘Staying Safe’ flyer
At HATS we have recently produced a handy double-sided safety guide for school children on our services – raising awareness for #SaveKidsLives. The flyer of school bus Dos and Dont’s is designed to help make children more aware of road safety on our services when travelling to and from school.
As well as providing children with some key safety information, our new flyer also shines a light on the amazing #SaveKidsLives campaign, and how everyone can get involved.
You can also view and download the safety flyer right now on the HATS website.
