The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety sponsors Drive Safely Work Week each year during the first week of October. NAFA Fleet Management Association is promoting the annual safety campaign, which takes place this year Oct. 1-5.Drive Safely Work Week encourages businesses to use a free campaign toolkit to help educate employees on how to prevent fatigued driving. The toolkit features facts on driving drowsy, interactive quizzes and tools, daily activities and communication messages, and downloadable posters for the office. Along with a focus on fatigued driving, NETS Drive Safely Work Week also looks at the importance of buckling your seat belt; staying distraction-free while driving; and parking safely, with awareness to your surroundings. The campaign materials are not dated and can be used throughout the year for continued promotion of safe driving practices. Safe driving is essential to the fleet managers who belong to NAFA, a group that collectively manages millions of vehicles that travel on North American roads each day. NAFA has lent its support to the annual Drive Safely Work Week campaign for the past several years through a series of articles in the Association's print and online publications, press releases, and email blasts to the Membership.The campaign toolkit may be downloaded for free at www.trafficsafety.org.
