When you drive your own vehicle on the job, you have safety responsibilities.
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:
