Drive Safely Work Week Campaign Offers Spanish Materials

Drive Safely Work Week 2013 is Oct. 7-11. This year's theme is "Gear Up for Safe Driving - Mind, Body, Vehicle." Campaign toolkits are now available in both English and Spanish. Traffic crashes remain the leading contributor to fatal work injuries, according to the most recent BLS data. "Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) wants to reach as many employees and employee family members as possible with the safe-driving messages of the campaign," says Jack Hanley, NETS executive director. 

The employer toolkit provides web-based resources that illustrate how maintenance of mind, body and vehicle are connected, vital components to being a safe driver. Actionable steps are provided to help drivers be at their best behind the wheel. NETS' member companies collectively represent a fleet of more than half a million vehicles that travel more than 10 billion miles globally each year.
