UN Global Road Safety Week

8-14 May 2017

Small changes, big results

Research shows that a 5% cut in average speed can result in a 30% reduction in the number of fatal road traffic crashes.  Given that vehicle crashes are a major cause of lost work days, employers have a role to play in drawing attention to the fact that slowing down can save lives.

Use the downloadable toolkit materials from this web page to conduct your own safety campaign, in conjunction with the UN Global Road Safety Week. 

If you would like to translate the content, please contact NETS for access to the files.

Let’s Get Started

Global Road Safety Week campaign materials include meaningful activities that reinforce the program’s safe-driving messages yet won’t take significant time away from the work day. Materials are available in both English and Spanish.

How to get started:

During Global Road Safety Week:

  • Post social media announcements throughout the week
  • Distribute employee fact sheet
  • Conduct speed training workshop/webinar
  • Print and post posters as reminders
