Projects

Let’s Drive Change

Through results-driven initiatives, Together for Safer Roads focuses on three project areas to create a sustainable impact on road safety.

Safer Companies and Fleets

Globally, between 25 and 33 percent of road crashes are work-related and 36 percent of occupational deaths are due to crashes. As of 2014, there were more than 329 million commercial vehicles on the world’s roads.

Together for Safer Roads believes that companies have the responsibility of considering the welfare of their employees, as well as the potential dangers business fleets may pose. That’s why Together for Safer Roads is committed to leveraging member companies’ collective intellectual capital to advance best practices for companies and their fleets.

USING TECHNOLOGY TO ADDRESS ROAD SAFETY CHALLENGES

By using the latest technologies, the private sector can make a significant impact on ensuring their operations, fleets, and employee drivers are safe during transport.

With these guidelines, TSR aims to support companies with the transition to best practice, allowing collaboration towards a united objective – a world where roads are safer for all people.

Developing and Managing Corporate Transportation Programs

Companies must develop an environment that supports the emergence of safer road users. By initiating simple steps, companies can improve their safety performance and better protect the well-being of their employees and other road users.

Together for Safer Roads has compiled member companies’ best practiced processes and guidelines for developing and managing corporate transportation programs.

World Day for Safety and Health at Work

World Day for Safety and Health at Work, held every year on April 28, is Together for Safer Roads’ flagship initiative to educate members’ employees, partners, and communities around safe driving practices at and away from work.

In 2017, Together for Safer Roads’ engaged more than 1.5 million people across 85 countries on how to be safer road users.
