2007 Trophy Recipients

Central Queensland Road Safety Strategy – Mining Industry Road Safety Alliance / Road Accident Action Group. The program is an education and awareness strategy which targeted key messages each month based on relevant issues to that time period. Topics focused on the major risks associated with driving the highways in the Bowen Basin, such as open road driving including fatigue, over-taking, speed and securing loads, sharing the highway with wide loads, by educating mine employees and thewider community.

2006 Premier’s Award Recipient

The Road Accident Action Group Fatigue Management Team – Road Safety and Fatigue Awareness program

To address accidents through fatigued drivers associated with the mining industry in Central Queensland, the Fatigue Management Team is dedicated to working with industry and communities to address fatigue-related issues. As part of their work the team delivers presentations to mining industry workers about the risks and consequences of driving when fatigued. The Fatigue Management Team in working with industry have been integral in bringing organisations together to form the ‘Mining Industry Road Safety Alliance’, which provides ongoing support to the Fatigue Management Team activities.


2004 Trophy Recipients

Mackay Road Accident Action Group – Young Drivers Community Network

This initiative was developed to encourage young drivers to help address the over-representation of young drivers involved in accidents on Mackay’s local roads. The initiative aims to break down barriers between young drivers and government authorities and also to educate young drivers of safe driving practices. A series of events and meetings attended by the Youth Network, authority group representatives and the community all helped to break down the communication barriers and develop relationships.

2003 Trophy Recipients

Mackay Road Accident Action Group – Fatigue Sucks

The Fatigue Sucks Initiative involved the police and Queensland Transport officers intercepting Central Queensland motorists to provide a lolly pack and fatigue information. Once again, this is a positive initiative targeting a very real road safety issue!
