SURVIVE is an acronym for Safe Use of Roadside Verges in Vehicular Emergencies.
It is an initiative specifically set up to support those who work on, or stop in the course of their journey on, highways.
It has changed public behaviour on motorways and reduced the number of claims in the vehicle recovery sector.
It is a team project with stakeholders working together. Originally funded by AA, RAC, Green Flag, Highways Agency, Police and HSE it is now supported in a variety of ways by a much larger community of professionals who work on fast roads.
SURVIVE was born out of project work by our staff and continues to receive technical support from us on a range of matters including but not limited to health and safety law and practice.
