The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) announces the publication of NETS' Comprehensive Guide to Road Safety (Guide). The publication was produced by a committee of members from NETS' Board of Directors, drawing from their companies' road safety best practices, in addition to publicly available resources.

The Guide has global applicability and is for employers of large or small fleets of all vehicle types with new, developing or advanced road safety programs. The Guide is available free of charge via the NETS Website.

NETS' Comprehensive Guide to Road Safety covers key performance indicators, organizational requirements, business case development, continuous improvement, programs, and policies.

“The Guide provides an excellent starting point for companies and organizations of all sizes with all types of fleets wanting to put in place a road safety program for their operations,” said Mike Watson, Global Road Safety Manager at Shell International Petroleum Company and member of NETS' Board of Directors. “The Guide also serves as a tool for fleet safety managers to compare their existing programs to those of leading employers in road safety.”

The Guide is supported by appendices with model policies and implementation tips and will complement NETS’ two other signature programs—its annual STRENGTH IN NUMBERS Fleet Safety Benchmark Program and the annual Drive Safely Work Week campaign.
