View Initiative


Casa del Rider is a local initiative implemented in the context of the project ‘New jobs new protections’ stemming from the collaboration between the National Institute for Insurance against Accidents at Work (INAIL), the CGIL trade union and the Napoli Pedala association.

The main goal of the project is to improve the working conditions of workers in the delivery sector by providing access to information on issues of workplace safety and specifically with regards to accident prevention and health and safety regulations. The project also aims to inform the broader public as well as local and regional institutions on the issue of road safety.

As part of the initiatives supported by the project the Rider’s House was established as a physical hub equipped with a charging area for electric bikes, backpack storage, notice board and relaxation areas. Furthermore, at the Rider’s House, bike maintenance courses and information seminars are held on the correct posture when using it and safe cycling in an urban environment.

The project also involves the creation of a ‘safety kit’ available to workers which will contain information materials relating to health and safety at work and personal protective equipment (masks, reflective bibs, bike maintenance equipment, etc.).
