Reducing work-related traffic injuries and deaths is the goal of a new alliance between OSHA and the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS).

"Motor vehicle incidents are one of the top causes of fatalities on the job," says OSHA chief John Henshaw.

"Safe driving is everyone's business and employers must do their part to make safe driving practices a part of every trip, every day," adds Kathryn Lusby-Treber, executive director of NETS.

OSHA and NETS will work together to provide employers of all sizes with access to information and resources such as OSHA¿s Compliance Assistance Specialists and NETS States, which can be used to create effective workplace traffic safety programs, develop and disseminate materials that promote safe driving practices, and work on electronic assistance tools for workplace traffic safety programs, including fleet safety programs.
