Sample email message
Instructions: Here is a sample email message you can customize to send to your co-workers, supervisor and others

March 7-11, 2016 is Road Safety At Work Week and I am getting involved to help improve the safety of those I
work with when they drive for work. I hope you will get involved too.

in BC workplaces. An average 24 workers are killed and another 1,300 are injured and miss time from work every
year because of a motor vehicle crash.
This year the focus of Road Safety at Work Week is on the rights and responsibilities of those who drive for work
and the road safety responsibilities of employers and supervisors.
Preventing crashes saves lives and avoids serious injuries, property damage, downtime and lost productivity.
Fewer crashes translate to lower assessment fees and insurance rates. All of this makes smart business sense that
will save an organization money over the long haul.
I urge you to get involved. There is a short quiz you can take or a longer online course (coming in February. Make
road safety the focus of your safety meetings during the week by using this handy Tailgate Talk guide. Other ideas
about how you can participate are available at
