Drive Safely Work Week is Oct. 6-10

Vienna, VA – The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety is encouraging employers to bolster their safety culture as part of Drive Safely Work Week (Oct. 6-10).

Now in its 18th year, DSWW is aimed at helping employees travel safely whether they drive as part of their job or simply commute to and from the workplace. As part of the campaign, NETS has developed a toolkit containing strategies for developing and sustaining safe driving programs.

“Regardless of the reason for the trip, time spent behind the wheel is very likely the most dangerous part of an employee’s day,” Joseph McKillips, chairman of the NETS board of directors, said in a press release. “If your safety programs don’t currently integrate policies, procedures, communication tools and or practices related to safe driving for all employees, DSWW could be your opportunity to introduce these concepts.”
