WRO and CBMM announce partnership to boost road safety

The World Rescue Organization (“WRO”) and CBMM, a pioneer in Niobium technologies, announced a new global partnership to strengthen road safety regulations, promote the development of improved post-crash rescue techniques, and increase road safety. 

Over 3,500 people die on the roads every day, which equates to approximately 1.3 million avoidable deaths and an estimated 50 million injuries annually, according to the WHO.

The partnership between CBMM and the WRO will include:

– Sharing information about the development of new automotive materials and how they impact post-crash response and rescue techniques

– Identifying initiatives to promote improved vehicle manufacturing standards in regions which do not currently apply global best practice standards

– Monitoring automotive trends, such as the deployment of electric vehicles, and how they impact road safety and crash response.

Fabio D’Aiuto, Executive Manager of Market Development, CBMM, said, “Despite the huge improvements in vehicle safety that have been achieved in recent years, we must all do more to reduce the currently unacceptably high level of fatalities from crashes. We see the partnership with the WRO as an important opportunity to contribute to this effort by using our respective skills to identify practical solutions.”

Paul Schroeder, Chair, WRO, added, “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.”

The WRO and CBMM are both members of the Global Road Safety Partnership and support the World Health Organization’s Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021–2030, which aims to reduce the number of severe and fatal road accidents by half by 2030.
