Road Safety for Your Staff
How Employers Can Help Prevent Vehicle Crashes
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.
