The principal risk workers face every workday is from transportation incidents. Recognizing this, and consistent with its focus on workplace safety, the National Safety Council has made reducing transportation-related injuries and fatalities a priority. There is even a special Division devoted to finding solutions.
The Transportation Safety Division is comprised of industry, labor and government safety practitioners that share best practices and assist the NSC in their goal of incident reduction. Join our group and, together, we can work to protect people as they use transportation at work and off the job.
