Drive Safely Work Week 2012 Materials Now Available


Drive Safely Work WeekMotor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of work-related deaths, accounting for 24% of all fatal occupational injuries. These on-the-job crashes are costly to employers, incurring average costs of more than $24,500 per property damage incident and $150,000 per injury crash.

To help reduce these numbers, the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) is sponsoring Drive Safely Work Week 2012 from October 1-5, and campaign materials are now available at no cost. This year's theme is Back to Basics - Your Keys to Safe Driving. The campaign will focus on issues important for building and maintaining a safe-driving foundation, including:
  • Always buckling up
    Safe Driving signs and labels
  • Being well-rested and clear-headed
  • Eliminating distractions
  • Avoiding rear-end collisions
  • Safe parking and backing
A web-based campaign toolkit provides downloadable activities and resources for each day of the campaign week. Toolkit components include:
  • Fact / tip sheets on campaign issues
  • Daily activities with supporting resources
  • Downloadable graphics
Now is the time to start planning your Drive Safely Work Week campaign:
