Netley School Lorry Safety Day

By Lynch

Spring 2021

Lynch had an exciting day at Netley School, talking to 400 students about everything road safety. Craig McCormack, Driver Development Supervisor, and Rob Lynch, Director, spent the day with groups of children outside the school, showing them the lorry and talking with them about how we stay safe on the roads.

The children were excited to see the lorry parked outside their school, to see what it looks like, to hear the sounds it makes, and to learn what those sounds meant for them. As well as this, they were even more excited to be able to sit in the driver’s seat of the cab. This helped them to see what the drivers can and cannot see and understand the road from a driver’s perspective.

Craig McCormack explained that “the message was focused on how the children can help our drivers to keep them, and their families, safe. We spoke to them in a way that they could understand, we asked questions about what they thought, and we kept them engaged. As a national provider of transport services, we need to be able to engage with communities about road safety, and to keep children safe on their way to and from school. It was great to see the children so interested in road safety.”

We were invited by SCS JV to innovate and drive the message of road safety.

The day went very well and wouldn’t have been possible without Lynch. Both Craig and Rob were knowledgeable and had a passion and presence around them which engaged them with the children. The feedback from the school was very positive and they understand the benefit of these events and the important message that is conveyed.

We received great feedback from the school, with Deputy Headteacher Gareth Morris saying “Thank you for organising such a fabulous day. Really amazing road safety and so practical for the children to understand. The children and adults loved it.”

Engaging with local communities is so important to us, and we look forward to being able to do more in the future.

Safety is our top priority
