Road Safety for Your Staff

How Employers Can Prevent Car Accidents

Course Description

Driving for work is one of the riskiest things workers have to do. According to WorkSafeBC, between 2015 and 2019, an average of 21 people per year died while driving for work. Another 1,500 people were injured during the same period. This issue particularly impacts small businesses, where approximately 85 per cent of those injured are employed by businesses with fewer than 20 employees.

The good news is, there are tangible, practical steps a small business owner can take to help reduce the likelihood of a crash. Join us for this informative and safety-focused webinar and learn what you can and should do to prevent the most important asset your business has – you and your employees – from getting into danger on the road. By preventing crashes you are saving lives, reducing injuries, and eliminating financial costs related to crashes in the long term.

What Will I Learn?

  • Why road safety is so important for you, your staff, and your business

  • A step-by-step approach to building a road safety program

  • Where to find more free road safety tools and resources

Due to the rapidly evolving public health situation surrounding COVID-19, Small Business BC has reached the difficult decision to modify how we deliver our services in the coming weeks.

As an organization, our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our clients, staff and service providers. We also want to ensure we maintain the high service standards our clients expect. As such, we will be delivering all our services online, or over the phone, until further notice. See here for more information on our service changesPlease use our COVID-19 small business resources – including this practical checklist for business continuity.
