The second annual Road Safety at Work Week will take place March 7-11, 2016. It’s a week designed to bring attention to the critically important issue of road safety in theworkplace. Motor-vehicles crashes are the leading cause of traumatic worker fatalities in British Columbia – 24 workers are killed and another 1,300 injured every year when driving for work.
This year the focus will be on helping employers and employees better understand their work-related driving responsibilities. Employers are responsible to those who drive whether they are employees who drive full time, such as truck, taxi and delivery drivers or those who drive as part of their jobs, such as homecare workers, tradespeople or salespeople.
Check back in early January for ways to get your organization involved!
