December 2018General Motors is committed to creating a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. The company demonstrates this commitment through investments in vehicle and road safety, STEM education and community development.
The National Safety Council is grateful to General Motors for their dedicated support in helping us establish and expand our parent education program, DriveitHOME (DIH). Through their generosity, we have reached thousands of parents with new drivers, providing them with the resources they need to guide their teenage drivers through their first year on the road.
Thanks to a new grant this year, NSC will continue to expand its reach with initiatives designed to engage more parents in utilizing the DriveitHOME resources. Through this partnership with General Motors, parents across the country will know how to keep their teens safe on the road and together, we will reduce the number of motor vehicle fatalities.
September 2018SafetyServe.com has been a dedicated partner and supporter of the National Safety Council for more than two decades. Even as large changes were afoot, co-founders Wade Mezey (CEO) and Susan Norton (President), wanted to do even more for safety.
In May 2018, Wade and Susan sold SafetyServe.com to TransForce, Inc., a leading workforce solutions provider to the transportation industry. Through that process, SafetyServe made a 6-figure, multi-year commitment to NSC to continue its partnership and commitment to safety through 2023.
SafetyServe.com, a software company and a provider of online safety training courses to companies, government agencies, insurance companies and other organizations, has provided the online platform NSC uses to deliver our NSC safety training. During that time, millions of drivers have received training through their platform.
NSC is grateful to partners like SafetyServe who invest in our mission and trust in us to find the solutions to eliminate preventable deaths in our lifetime.
April 2018The National Safety Council is grateful to FCA US for its commitment of to launch and sustain the Check to Protect campaign over the next three years. It is support from generous corporate partners like FCA US, who are committed to safety and investing in education and awareness campaigns, that will help the Council eliminate preventable deaths in our lifetime. Thank you to FCA US for its commitment to eliminating open recalls and preventable deaths on our roadways.
With NSC estimates showing more than 40,000 people died on our roadways in 2017, more action is needed to keep drivers, passengers and pedestrians safe. To help, the National Safety Council and FCA US partnered to create Check To Protect, a vehicle recall awareness campaign that educates drivers about the need to check for recalls and get them fixed. Our website, www.CheckToProtect.org, allows vehicle owners to determine their recall status in minutes.
More than 100,000 people have clicked to check their vehicles in the first year of the campaign. Several states already have partnered with us to help get the word out to their drivers, and additional partnerships are in the works in 2018. Recalls are 100 percent free to have repaired at your dealer so check your vehicle’s status today – and help us spread the word about www.CheckToProtect.org to keep your family, friends and colleagues safe.
