The Boylan Team
Our goal is to save lives!
Following the sale of Boylan Traffic Solutions (hire) to Coates in 2011; the Boylan Group have focused their energies on providing the Australian market with cutting-edge, proven, Road Safety infrastructure, concept and material initiatives. As an extension of the philosophy and drive of founder, Peter Boylan, our primary goal is to save lives on our roads; to be an accessible resource to design and construction and to ensure that Australia is at the forefront, and benefits from, road safety initiatives.
As Peter Boylan says, “if we are not taking every opportunity to save lives, we are costing lives!” There is a wealth of experience, technologies and concepts/trends out there, and lessons to be learned from the failures and successes of others. We at the Boylan Group pride ourselves on sharing the information we glean from around the world with design and industry, and making these proven technologies available for use in Australia.
Hailing from a background of motor racing with good mates Sir Jack Brabham, Peter Brock and Allan Moffat, Peter’s first inclination towards road safety was unsurprisingly from the drivers’ perspective. However, this view was to undergo rapid transformation and expansion, on analysis of the fatality and injury statistics pertaining to workzones.
As at 29 August, there have been 101 Australian workers killed at work in 2019. In 2018, the preliminary data show there were 149 Australian workers killed at work, compared with 190 workers in 2017. These 2018 figures are preliminary figures and will be updated when more information becomes available.
