Preventing injury and death on our roads
PBF Australia has developed a range of inspirational injury prevention programs that aim to reduce the incidence of serious injury at work, on the road and at play.
Our award winning road injury prevention program has been designed with the goal of reducing the number of serious injuries and road deaths occurring in Australia. Targeting students in years 10, 11 and 12 who are at pre and novice-driver levels, this classroom presentation has been developed in close consultation with teachers and students to engage and educate young drivers on the risks of the road and the consequences of poor decision-making.
Our impactful in school presentations focus on the prevention of road accidents and offer participants a first-hand account of what it is like to experience and live with a spinal cord injury sustained through a road crash in Australia.
Real life stories, close to the heart
Our injury prevention program speakers are inspiring individuals who have sustained a permanent injury; with many living full lives as a quadriplegic or paraplegic member of the community. Through our speakers’ personal stories, PBF is able to build greater awareness of the risks of spinal cord injury in Australia and as well as encourage safer road use and support better decision-making.
All our speakers are trained in facilitation techniques, presentation, listening and communication skills, and have an understanding of youth risk-taking behaviours and road safety issues.
- Demonstrate the potential consequences of unsafe road behaviour
- Increase knowledge of the major risk factors that cause road crashes
- Communicate the impact of serious injury or death
- Encourage positive attitudes to safe road behaviour
- Demonstrate the personal responsibility for choices and the consequences
- Encourage young people to be assertive in communicating safe choices to peers
