Drive Safely Work Week

Transportation accidents occurr at some of the highest rates while working. Today's post was shared by NIOSH Transportation and comes from trafficsafety.org


Welcome to Drive Safely Work Week (DSWW) 2013— Gear Up For Safe Driving: Mind • Body • Vehicle.

This year's campaign takes a holistic approach to safe driving that highlights how being at your physical and mental best—along with the "health" of your vehicle—are all connected in making us safer drivers.
Among other things, the campaign materials cover:
  • Tips for getting better sleep;
  • The importance of regular vision screening;
  • Strategic ways to use rest breaks to sustain energy and focus; and
  • Making sure drivers have the right fit to their vehicle and that the vehicle is fit for a safe trip.
Simple, actionable steps are provided to help employees be at their best behind the wheel of a well-maintained vehicle.
In the U.S. alone, employers have the opportunity to directly reach more than half of the driving population—even more when information is extended to employee family and community members. Working together, we can significantly reduce the number of traffic crashes and injuries that impact our workforce, members of our families and communities worldwide.
Thank you for downloading the 2013 DSWW campaign. We appreciate your partnership with us to help make a difference in the lives of people around the world.
Safe travels,
