Keeping Your Workers Safe
Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of traumatic workplace deaths in BC.
On average each year, 23 workers are killed, and another 1,290 are injured and miss time from work due to work-related motor vehicle incidents (MVIs).1
Winter is an especially dangerous time for workers who drive. Winter conditions in BC can extend from early October to the end of April. And “Winter” is more than just snow and ice. Rain, fog, and reduced visibility are all part of winter hazards for BC drivers.
As an employer or supervisor, you’re responsible for the safety of all your workers when driving for work in the winter
- whether they’re driving company vehicles or their own vehicles, and
- whether they’re on the road all day or just once or twice a week.
