Langley site for workplace driving seminar

A free workshop for employers on road safety is in Langley Oct. 22.

The Workplace Road Safety Workshop is an initiative managed by the Justice Institute of BC and funded by WorkSafeBC to help employers improve the safety of workers who drive for work or work at the roadside by delivering programs and resources to help reduce the number of work-related motor vehicle crashes, deaths and injuries in B.C.

The workshop is free but space is limited so people are asked to sign up in advance (604-770-2500 or angelina.robinson@roadsafetyatwork.ca).

Participants will learn how to implement work-related road safety best practices using the tools, resources and content on RoadSafetyAtWork.ca to work through a structured methodology similar to standard occupational health and safety models. The workshop emphasizes practical time and cost-effective solutions for all types of organizations.

Learn how to develop a best-practice based road safety program for the workplace, or to improve an existing program.

For more information about the Road Safety At Work employer workshops visit www.RoadSafetyAt Work.ca.

The workshop is at Safety Driven, 100-20111 93A Ave. and runs 1-4 p.m.
