Do your employees drive for work, even occasionally?
You’re still responsible for their safety.
Shift into Winter
Prepare now for fall, winter driving
Employers, drivers, and vehicles need to be ready as temperatures drop. Many highways require winter tires as of October 1.
Driving for work is dangerous. It doesn’t have to be, since most crashes, injuries, and deaths are preventable. Together, employers and employees can help ensure all work drivers and roadside workers get home safe at the end of their shift.
Behind every road safety crash statistic is a family member, friend, co-worker, or neighbour who was seriously hurt or killed. WorkSafeBC statistics for 2017 through 2021 for BC show:
of traumatic workplace deaths were due to vehicle crashes.
deaths from work-related vehicle crashes every year, on average.
people injured and off work from work-related vehicle crashes every year, on average.
Anyone who drives full-time, part-time, or only occasionally for work can be injured or killed in a crash. That’s why road safety needs to be part of your workplace safety program.
Policies and procedures are the foundation of an effective road safety program. They set standards and provide instructions for employees. Use our templates to create or update your organization’s safe driving rules.
