Update from Joe McKillips, NETS’ Executive Director – April 2017
NETS has, for many years, sponsored Drive Safely Work Week™ (DSWW), a comprehensive road safety awareness campaign traditionally held the first week of October. Historically, many found these materials to be valuable, but were only receiving the materials on an annual basis. In order to bring year-round attention to these important messages, we are happy to announce that we are updating this hallmark program.
Going forward, we will focus on short, direct and actionable messages, emphasizing simple and specific behaviors employees can change that will reduce their risk of a vehicle crash. We’ll also deliver modules more frequently, on a quarterly basis.
Beginning next month, I’m excited to announce the next NETS Drive Safely Work Week™ module is focused on Speed, and offered in collaboration with the United Nations Global Road Safety Week May 8-12, 2017. Information regarding the campaign will be posted to the NETS website, and additional launch communications will be forthcoming.

Also, registration is now open for the NETS Annual STRENGTH in NUMBERS® Benchmark Conference, scheduled for October 11-12, 2017 at the Omni Hotel in Charlottesville, VA. Invitation to register for the conference is one of the benefits of NETS membership, so if you’re not already a NETS member, I invite you to consider the benefits and join us at the only conference focused exclusively on traffic safety.
