Drive Safely Work Week logo
The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety sponsor Drive Safely Work Week (DSWW) every year to help employers remind employees about safe driving practices. The organization provides complete campaign materials including daily activities, graphics, launch letters and tips to help employers hold a successful campaign.

The 2013 campaign takes place October 7-11 and highlights how physical and mental condition - along with the "health" of your vehicle - can contribute to safer driving. It's a great fit for any workplace, especially those that have employees who drive on company business. Among other things, the campaign materials cover:
  • Tips for getting better sleep
  • The importance of regular vision screening
  • Strategic ways to use rest breaks to sustain energy and focus
  • Making sure drivers have the right fit to their vehicle and that the vehicle is fit for a safe trip
Simple, actionable steps are provided to help employees be at their best behind the wheel of a well-maintained vehicle.

In the U.S. alone, employers have the opportunity to directly reach more than half of the driving population, and even more when information is extended to family and community members.
