Winter Safety Campaign

Winter Safety Campaign

In 2021, we launched our first Winter Safety Campaign in Australia providing riders with additional safety information, resources, events and freebies to help keep riders safe and confident while out on the road. 

2021

Safety Information - we ran our 2021 Winter Safety Campaign for 5 weeks covering safety themes such as vehicle maintenance, visibility, road rules, handling bumps in the road and rider tips from some of our most experienced riders.

Rider Safety Events - We hosted several safety-focused rider events in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and even virtual online events! From first aid sessions with the Australian Red Cross to vehicle maintenance workshops with Reid Cycles and Verified Autoshop, riders were able to get safety tips directly from the experts.

Rider Safety Matters podcast - We launched our brand new Rider Safety Matters podcast, where riders can hear from the Deliveroo team, experienced riders, and safety experts such as the Australian Red Cross. Listen here!

Free Kit Bundles - As part of our 2021 Winter Safety Campaign, we also developed free bundle accessories for cars, scooters and bicycle riders to help riders be safe and seen while out on the road. We also made free personal safety alarms available for riders to order for free.

Flare is a personal accident app that detects road incidents or collisions. It will automatically notify your emergency contacts and Deliveroo’s dedicated Rider Support team if it detects you’re in an accident, and lets riders report road risks in the app such as blind turns or a pothole.
