IRU Academy - Road Safety and Professional Training Seminar
11-12 May 2011, Istanbul, International Road Transport Union (IRU)

The IRU, through its national associations, represents the entire road transport industry world-wide. It speaks for the operators of coaches, taxis and trucks, from large transport fleets to driver-owners. In all international bodies that make decisions affecting road transport, the IRU acts as the industry's advocate. By working for the highest professional standards, the IRU improves the safety record and environmental performance of road transport and ensures the mobility of people and goods. On the occasion of the launch of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, the IRU Academy - the educational arm of the IRU - is holding a road safety seminar with a special focus on changing the behaviour of road users in order to effectively improve road safety, the "UN Decade of Action on Road Safety," accident causation analysis and professional road transport training.
