Road Safety Education (RSE)
RSE is a youth driver awareness program aimed at equipping young people with the knowledge to stay safe on Australian roads. The programme targets teenagers who are at the stage of their lives where they start to drive or ride in a vehicle driven by their peers.
Road Safety Education Limited (RSE) is a not for profit organisation with a commitment to the reduction of trauma on our roads through the delivery of quality, evidence based road safety education programs. The award winning RYDA Program for senior high school students is part of a suite of programs for young people in years 9 to 12 and is the platform for implementation of new and targeted education programs for parents and corporate partners such as BOC.
RYDA, the flagship program, involves six interactive sessions presented by road safety professionals. At the RYDA Program, attendees hear first-hand from the experts:

There are no higher priorities for BOC as an organisation, than the health and safety of our employees, customers, suppliers and the broader community. As part of this genuine commitment, we provide our employees with internal safety schemes, such as the benchmarked BOC Driver Safety programme, which promotes safe driving behaviour 100% of the time.
RSE therefore has great synergies with our own BOC safe driving culture – and this is why we have been keen to support the development of this youth education initiative for younger drivers. BOC became the founding sponsor of RSE and the RYDA Program when it was a small yet growing community initiative. Through the sponsorship money BOC have contributed, RSE have been able to expand the programme from being a local NSW initiative to venues across Australia and New Zealand. We are most proud to be the Founding Sponsor of RSE and the RYDA Program.
