It also decided to create an employee-owned vehicle-use policy to ensure that all Hollyburn employees understand the importance of working safely while driving their own vehicle.
It distributed daily email driving safety bulletins and will continue to promote safe driving on a regular basis at department meetings.
It also identified driving hazards and assessed the associated risks and is working to eliminate or minimize those risks.
The College of New Caledonia’s Facilities Services Maintenance team made road safety its safety topic of the month for March.
The team held a tailgate meeting about distracted driving best practices and discussed the College’s driving policies.
Each team member was also shown how to put their phones on driving mode.
Each of its team members took the distracted driving quiz which was turned into a game with the winner getting bragging rights. They also printed off brochures and put them on their safety wall.
They will continue the focus on employee driving safety with another tailgate meeting about vehicle inspections scheduled soon.
Road Safety At Work Week 2019 will be March 4 - 8, 2019.
