Drive Safely Work Week is October 4-8

Drive Safely Work Week (DSWW) is an annual workplace safety campaign that reminds employees about safe driving practices. The 2010 campaign materials focus on the dangers of distracted driving, particularly as related to the use of cell phones and texting while driving. You can use Drive Safely Work Week materials to customize your own safe driving campaign any time of the year.

The program provides activities to:

  • Help prepare an organization for the launch of a new cell phone policy;
  • Reinforce an existing policy; or
  • Build awareness of the issues related to distracted driving and help develop strategies to minimize distractions.
The DSWW tool kit has everything needed to launch a successful campaign:
  • Activities for each day, including interactive, electronic-based tools
  • Daily communications messages
  • Downloadable graphics
Although national observance of the campaign takes place during the first week of October, the materials are not dated and can be used throughout the year for continued promotion of safe driving practices.
