Prevent dangerous situations by having your employees attend a bike@work workshop that covers the following areas and more: regulations governing (electric) bikes and the highway code, including where you should ride on the road, who has priority, mandatory equipment for the bike and wearing a bike helmet. You learn how to anticipate and recognise risks, and how to control these risks by anticipating hazardous situations. The shortest route is not always the safest route, so we also take a look at the local situation.

WHY?

Increasing numbers of commuters are discovering the bicycle for travelling to and from work. Employees and insurers alike are faced with a rise in the number of road accidents involving cyclists travelling to and from work. Cyclists face a risk per kilometre of having an accident that is 20 times higher than a car driver. This workshop provides cyclists with insights into safe cycling for becoming more aware about dealing with risks and so leading to fewer accidents.

RESULT

  • You know your place on the road and where you should be riding as a cyclist.
  • You know when your bike complies with the law and what aspects of your safety you can increase.
  • You know how you need to anticipate things and learn how to select the safest route.
  • You are able to respond appropriately to dangerous traffic situations and other road-users.
