Road Safety: Get Involved 

The National Safety Council is committed to eliminating preventable deaths. There are a number of ways you can help, individually or through your organization:

Road to Zero

In October 2016, the National Safety Council, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, launched Road to Zero. The goal is to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2050. Three principles drive this initiative:

  • Traffic fatalities are preventable
  • A future of zero driving deaths is more certain than ever with the emergence of self-driving vehicles and a focus on engineering safer road systems
  • A coordinated effort that brings together multiple stakeholders can achieve more than individual organizations working independently

Join the Road to Zero coalition.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month

NSC observes Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April to draw attention to an epidemic that claims more than 3,000 lives each year. You can create awareness in your workplace, your home or your community by sharing distracted driving materials. In addition, you can pledge to your children and other loved ones that you will be an attentive driver.

Survivors Network

The NSC Survivors Advocate Network is a community of individuals and families whose lives forever have been changed by teen drivers, distracted drivers, prescription drug overdose or on-the-job incidents. Share your story and help prevent future loss.

Safety Ambassadors

NSC Safety Ambassadors work to keep each other safe. These individuals come from all walks of life and span all ages. NSC assists Safety Ambassadors by supplying educational materials that can be used to deliver safety messages. NSC is about to roll out a brand new Safety Ambassador program. Stay tuned.

Safety Awards

When employees are encouraged and recognized for safe behavior, companies can build strong corporate safety cultures. NSC recognizes the hard work that goes into preventing injuries and saving lives. Learn about the NSC workplace safety awards program.
