ACPs Environmental, Health & Safety Committee announces its second industry safety campaign.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 29,989 fatal motor vehicle traffic crashes resulting in 32,675 fatalities in 2014. Of these 29,989 fatal traffic crashes, there were 15,031 (50%) that occurred in rural areas, 14,509 (48%) that occurred in urban areas, and 449 (1%) that occurred in unknown areas. This campaign was designed to help you learn more about vehicle and driving safety and to help shed some light on this important topic. Please use the materials available on this website to refresh your staff’s training and knowledge on the topic.
