Seat belts should never have time off
The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS), through a cooperative agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), has developed a NEW 2Seconds2Click toolkit for employers to establish or enhance employee safety belt initiatives within their organization. This step-by-step toolkit includes everything you need to create a 4-week seat belt campaign within your workplace.
This toolkit is an extension of NETS Drive Safely Work Week™ (DSWW) campaign modules. DSWW has been an annual campaign sponsored by NETS for many years. In order to continue this successful endeavor, we updated the structure to focus more specifically on changing specific behaviors, with DSWW toolkits delivered more frequently.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) – The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES ARE THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH AMONG WORKERS IN THE U.S.
Wearing a seat belt is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash. According to the most recent Cost of Motor Vehicle Crashes to Employers, crashes cost employers more than $47 BILLION DOLLARS.
The 2Seconds2Click campaign is designed to be effective and efficient. It is also structured to enable users to facilitate weekly meetings with employees (either as one large group or broken into smaller groups). The 2Seconds2Click Employee Engagement Plan walks you through the 4-week campaign and provides thumbnails of the material contained in the toolkit. This plan contains campaign highlights and step-by-step instructions for each week, including how to distribute the documents provided as well as instructions for the optional evaluation component.
