It is Road Safety at Work Week in BC!

From March 2-6, all employers and workers are asked to create awareness around road safety at work.

On average in BC each year, 23 workers die in work-related motor vehicle incidents and more than 1,200 are injured.

Distracted driving is a key factor. The BC Forest Safety Council co-sponsored this radio ad across the province to help spread the safety message.

Because on the road, the smartest phone is off!
