Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of workplace fatalities. As part of the National Safety Council’s strategies to address motor vehicle safety, it is partnering with the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety to provide NSC members with the opportunity to participate in the NETS fleet safety benchmarking program, Strength in Numbers.
The program helps organizations benchmark their fleet’s performance against other participants on 25 fleet safety program elements, such as driver training programs, crash review practices, leadership engagement and cell phone policies. More than 36 leading companies with a combined fleet of 350,000 participated in 2008.
The program also provides several other benefits, including:
- One free invitation to the NETS annual Fleet Safety Best Practices Conference.
- A monthly subscription to the Road Smart e-newsletter.
- Access to the members only section of the NETS website to view past benchmarking reports, discuss best practices and more.
- The opportunity to network with other NETS members who share a commitment to roadway safety.
The benchmark survey is conducted annually. The fee to participate is $990 per year. However, NSC members receive a 10 percent discount for a total cost of $890 per year. To learn more, please visit the NETS website.
