NETS Road Safety Guide Now Available in Over 20 Languages

How Am I Driving? Call______

Any company with vehicles on the road must constantly evaluate the dangers and liabilities that accompany this part of the operation. To help fleets of any size, the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS), released a guide to advance company fleet safety.

Now the NETS Comprehensive Guide to Road Safety is crossing borders in its usefulness thanks to the help of the Coca-Cola Company, which translated the guide from English into 20 other languages. Many of the world’s most widely spoken languages are included, such as Chinese, Spanish, Hindi, Arabic and Russian. And the list goes on to include:
  • Burmese
  • Khmere-Cambodian
  • Portuguese
  • Swahili
  • Vietnamese
  • Plus more!

More than 50 percent of the world’s population can currently benefit from a version of the document.* What exactly makes the guide useful in diverse regions across the world? The guide itself addresses this. It can be used as a primer by companies early in creating a road safety program, an audit tool for those with a pre-existing program and a template for comparison between companies benchmarking their programs.**

Whether you’re looking for broad guidance like an example of road safety organizational structure or something as specific as managing fleet driver fatigue, a valuable resource is at hand, and you probably won’t have to run it through unreliable translation techniques to use it. Best of all, it’s accessible at no charge.
