94% of all Crashes
Why should you care about Drive Safely Work Week? Why should you care if your employees or co-workers are not getting enough sleep, or if they like to text while driving, or like to crank up the music really loud, or get into fights with their girlfriend when they are driving? As long as they show up to work the next day, it's not your problem....
...unless they don't show up for work the next day.
More than half the people killed in traffic accidents in the U.S. last year were someone's employee. They were moms and dads, daughters and sons, grandparents, aunts and uncles, co-workers and supervisors. They were people just like us with families to support and people depending on them.
This week is an important one as companies across the nation observe the 20th annual Drive Safely Work Week. This year's safe-driving campaign is Drowsy, Distracted, or Focused... Your Decisions Drive Your Safety.
94% of all traffic crashes are a result of driver-related factors like fatigue, driver error, impairment and distraction.
That means, almost ALL car accidents happen because someone wasn't paying attention.
Most of us think we are pretty good drivers. We think it's the other drivers out there who are causing the problems. But year after year, surveys show that most drivers admit to engaging in the same dangerous behaviors that they criticize as being "unacceptable" in others.
Because we think this is one of the most important campaigns of the year, the Weeklysafety.com team has put together a new set of 5 toolbox talks that we are sharing with you.

Don't miss this important opportunity to put some attention on this issue with your teams. You never know when the next safety huddle you have will save someone's life. #DSWW2016
