Road Safety at Work is a program funded by WorkSafeBC and managed by the Justice Institute of British Columbia. Our aim is to help BC employers improve the safety of their employees when they drive for work. We provide tools and resources plus educational and support services all aimed at helping prevent motor vehicle crashes. Road Safety at Work also raises awareness about road safety amongst the general public.
To support our mandate, Road Safety at Work:
- produces occupational road safety resources (e.g., Tool Kits, planning templates, sample policies and checklists)
- offers educational resources (e.g., online courses, video tutorials and a monthly newsletter)
- provides road safety tools (e.g., RiskCheck, Road Safety Snapshot, TripCheck)
- presents webinars and workshops
- makes presentations and conducts outreach at events
- provides advisory services, and
- promotes road safety programs and campaigns
Road Safety at Work manages two campaigns, Cone Zone and Shift into Winter. Cone Zone is designed to help improve the safety of roadside workers (e.g., flaggers in construction zones, truck drivers forced to park on the road due to emergencies, landscapers who work in medians/near roadways). Shift Into Winter encourages drivers and employers to prepare themselves and plan ahead when driving in winter conditions.
Road Safety at Work is available to make presentations at conferences, association meetings or other similar events where employers, supervisors and other decision-makers gather.
