Drive Safely Work Week
The Drive Safely Work Week (DSWW) campaign is an annual event designed to protect your employees and your business, and send a message that safe driving is a value in your organization.
Whether your employees drive as a part of their job or just to commute to and from work, their time on the road is the most dangerous part of their day. Help them focus on safe driving during national Drive Safely Work Week in October and year-round. See resources from 2013 below; 2014 campaign materials coming in early fall.
