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. People are a company’s greatest asset, and the private sector must create a culture of safety for them – as our employees and communities.

That’s why Together for Safer Roads is committed to leveraging member companies’ collective private sector intellectual capital and expertise to advance best practices for companies and their fleets.

We provide companies of all sizes evidence-based approaches to understand and execute transportation programs and safety interventions.

Share Your Ideas With Us

Together for Safer Roads’ members are committed to improving safer road outcomes that result in actionable programs to reduce risk and save lives. By sharing best practices with and among smaller fleet operators, we can collectively develop sophisticated programs that can improve road safety outcomes.

Join our Global Leadership Council For Fleet Safety

In 2019, TSR launched the Global Leadership Council for Fleet Safety (GLCFS). The Global Leadership Council uses peer-to-peer knowledge-sharing to help smaller, under-resourced fleet operators create safety cultures that reduce risk and save lives in the communities they serve. Founding Council Champions include AB InBev, CalAmp, Republic Services, PepsiCo, Geotab, and New York City Fleet, under the direction of the NYC Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS).

There are multiple ways to get involved - as a larger fleet mentor for smaller fleets, or as a fleet operator participant in the program. Reach out to learn more.

Improving Bicyclist Safety in New York.

In 2019, TSR formed a formal partnership with the City of New York to improve bicyclist safety. The partnership kicked off with a workshop in October, Digitizing Vision Zero, where both parties convened public and private sector leaders in fleet safety management, technology, and bicycling to develop data, analytics and technology pilots to reduce conflicts between large vehicle operators and people riding bikes.

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.

Together, TSR engaged nearly 250,000 people across 23 countries to be safer road users.
