NSC, Texas DOT Join Forces for Safe Driving Initiative

The Traffic Safety Section of the Texas Department of Transportation has teamed with the National Safety Council for what it calls a landmark driving initiative, creating a state-wide network of employer involvement in crash prevention for employees both on and off-the-job, with a particular emphasis on impaired driving, commercial motor vehicle safety, and driver distractions.

The organizations plan to engage Texas business owners, executive managers, safety and health, human resource and public affairs professionals to introduce best practice traffic safety strategies and build commitment to motor vehicle crash prevention within their organizations. The initiative's goals are three-fold: to educate Texas employers about their cost in dollars and non-productivity from traffic-related injuries and deaths among workers and their dependents; to connect employers with state-level traffic safety resources and develop drivers' training curricula that targets impaired driving, distracted driving, and fleet safety; and to create an effective state-employer alliance model on traffic safety for potential roll-out in other states.

NSC says it hopes the initiative will serve as a model for future alliances among employers, states, and traffic safety advocates, and drive improvements in the nation's driving safety culture.
