“Reaching Zero: Actions to Eliminate Substance-Impaired Driving” will be held on Tuesday - Wednesday, May 15-16, 2012, in the NTSB Conference Center and Board Room in Washington, DC.

In addition, the final agenda, with speaker names, affiliations, and biographies, has been published and is available on the forum website: www.ntsb.gov/ReachingZero.

The two-day forum will include a look at the substances that impair drivers and how those effects are measured; an examination of the types of individuals that drive impaired and how such behavior can be prevented; the role of education and outreach; judicial and extra-judicial approaches to preventing substance-impaired driving; and a look at strategies other countries have used to reduce substance-impaired driving accidents and fatalities.

The forum is free and open to all; no registration is required.

The entire two-day event will be webcast live at bit.ly/fzFiOW. An archive of the webcast will be available on our website for three months following the event.

Follow the NTSB on twitter@NTSB; the hashtag for the forum is #ReachingZero.

The Safety Selfie: It’s time to take a “snap shot” of your safety program and contemplate what others see

We all know perception is reality and that people perceive things differently. As a safety manager, your perception of your safety program almost certainly differs from that of your workers and your managers. We will use our “Safety Selfies” to expose weaknesses, real and perceived, and to talk about how best to make improvements.
