At Work At Home On the Road

Employers are Leading the Way

Drive Safely Work Week is Oct. 3-7, 2016

  • Drive Safely Work Week Celebrates 20 Years

    Every October for the past 20 years, employers have had the opportunity to help their employees focus on safe driving. This year, Drive Safely Work Week, sponsored by the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety, will be recognized Oct. 3-7, 2016.

    During the week, NETS provides free materials for employers to share to keep their employees safe on the road. The materials focus on preventing drowsy and distracted driving, speeding and the importance of wearing a seat belt.

    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, driver behavior contributes to 94% of all traffic crashes.

    You can help makes the roads safer for everyone by sharing this information.
