The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation will launch "Drive Safely Work Week 2010," an annual workplace safety campaign to remind employees about safe-driving practices.
This year's campaign, which runs Oct. 4-8, focuses on the dangers of distracted driving, particularly as related to the use of cell phones and texting. The program will provide meaningful activities to help prepare an organization for the launch of a new cell phone policy, reinforce an existing policy, or build awareness on the issues related to distracted driving and help develop strategies to minimize the danger.
NETS is providing a 2010 Drive Safely Work Week tool kit, which can be downloaded for free until Sept. 20 at www.trafficsafety.org/drivesafelyworkweek/. The campaign tool kit is entirely Web-based and includes fact/tip sheets on the campaign issues, interactive quizzes and tools, daily activities and communications messages and downloadable graphics.
