The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) is a collaborative group of employer road safety professionals whose objective is to advance road safety for employees, their family members and members of the communities where they live and work. Members help one another improve road safety and reduce losses through fleet safety benchmarking and sharing proven, best practice approaches.
NETS membership includes global traffic safety leaders across private industry and government, whose fleets range from fewer than 100 vehicles to those with more than 50,000.
NETS members invest in road safety to protect their colleagues, families, friends and community as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility agenda.
Research shows that a 5% cut in average speed can result in a 30% reduction in the number of fatal road traffic crashes. Given that vehicle crashes are a major cause of lost work days, employers have a role to play in drawing attention to the fact that slowing down can save lives.
Use the downloadable toolkit materials to conduct your own safety campaign, in conjunction with the UN Global Road Safety Week.
NETS has created a selection of tools to use during the week:
