The team at The Safety Educator is honoured to welcome Rob Newman to our panel of experts. Rob is the founder and CEO of the Australian Child Restraint Resource Initiative (ACRI). Australia’s largest trainer of professional child passenger safety technicians.
ACRI (established in 2005), is a nationwide training and support network to a diverse range of workplaces working with passenger safety. Rob’s time at ACRI is divided between training, consulting and working with communities throughout Australia. Rob is a member of the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne Transport of Children with Additional Needs committee.
Keeping in mind that The Safety Educator’s target audience is from the ASEAN region and not only Australia where there are strict car seat laws, Rob will be blogging about why children need car seats as well as providing tips on how to keep children safe and comfortable in their car seat.
In Rob’s first blog he will write about the benefits of rear facing car seats and when is the most appropriate time to switch your child from the rear to the forward facing position.
Our sincere thanks goes out to Rob and the team at ACRI for donating their time to us.
