eDrivingSM, a Solera company, and leading global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, and the World Rescue Organisation (WRO), both members of the GRSP, have partnered to help prevent road deaths and injuries globally.
The WRO is a not-for-profit, registered charity that was created to aid the development of rescue and medical personnel for dealing with incidents involving road traffic collisions.
“For eDriving, the partnership with the WRO is important recognition of the incredible work being done by Fire, Rescue and Medical professionals across the world at the scene of road traffic collisions,” said Ed Dubens, Founder/CEO of eDriving. “At eDriving, we support over 1.2 million employees driving for work purposes across the globe, and their employers, who are working hard to create a crash-free culture. Knowing that WRO members are there to support our customer and partner Emergency Rapid Response Networks provides peace of mind for all involved, both at the scene of the collision and the immediate aftercare.”
The WRO’s aims include the introduction and maintenance of an industry-recognized standard for dealing with road collisions on a global basis, as well as the development of enhanced proficiency in rescue techniques, incident management, and medical care.
The WRO and its partners hold a unique position within the road safety community in that its members’ day-to-day activities require that they attend post-crash events. This fact enables them to contribute to the discussions around the development of effective intervention at post-crash incidents. The WRO states that ‘the challenge to prevent road death does not end with the collision’.
“We are proud to announce this partnership with eDriving,” said Paul Schroeder, WRO Chair. “For the WRO and its members, organizations such as eDriving who actively work to reduce road collisions and injuries through the promotion of a sustainable crash-free culture is for us, so much better than attending post-crash incidents. Reducing road collisions greatly prevents the occurrences of death, injury and the suffering of so many people around the world; it also helps to protect rescue and medical staff by reducing the number of incidents they attend. The WRO supports and encourages initiatives such as those of eDriving, and we look forward to combining our joint work in preventing road death and injury.”
