WRO and CBMM announce partnership to increase road safety
The World Rescue Organisation (WRO) and CBMM, a world leader in Niobium technologies, announce a new global partnership to advance road safety and reduce fatalities from crashes by improving vehicle safety standards and supporting the development of enhanced post-crash rescue techniques.
The WRO and CBMM are members of the Global Road Safety Partnership, share a commitment to reducing the number of fatalities on the road and support the World Health Organization’s Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 – which aims to halve the number of road fatalities and serious accidents by 2030. According to the WHO, over 3,500 people die every day on the roads, equivalent to nearly 1.3 million preventable deaths and an estimated 50 million injuries each year – making it the leading killer of children and young people worldwide.
The partnership between
CBMM and the WRO will include:
and crash response.
CBMM is a world leader in Niobium technologies and works with global materials producers and leading car manufacturers to develop and share technology that can save lives through the creation of better materials.
“The WRO and its members, see the development of partnerships with organizations such as CBMM as crucial in the understanding of new vehicle technology. CBMM are pushing the boundaries in new materials and their applications in vehicle design, understanding these developments and the implications for rescue personnel in managing post-crash incidents will greatly benefit the persons they are called upon to rescue. We see great benefit in linking those who produce specialist materials such as CBMM, vehicle manufacturers, rescue equipment tool manufacturers and rescue personnel who can all work together in reducing road death and injuries. Through such partnerships we will be able to develop practical initiatives to improve standards in post-crash response. We look forward to new and exciting opportunities working along side our new partner CBMM”.
