Road Safety At Work is an initiative managed by the Justice Institute of BC (JIBC) and funded by WorkSafeBC to help employers improve the safety of workers who drive for work or who work at the roadside. Our mandate is to increase employers’ awareness of their responsibilities for the “workplace on wheels” and deliver programs and resources to help reduce the number of work-related motor vehicle crashes, deaths and injuries on British Columbia roads.
This website is one of our core services and features topic-specific resources and an online assessment tool to help employers get started or enhance an occupational road safety program and assess its effectiveness. This site also features a five-step process to improve a company’s road safety performance regardless of its size or industry sector. Each of the five steps has simple instructions with worksheets, examples and suggested safe work practices informed by BC’s Preferred Practices for Occupational Road Safety.
We also offer a no-charge, three-hour workshop that helps participants begin or improve an occupational road safety program. During these workshops, participants will learn how to effectively use the tools, resources and content on this website and customize them to address the unique road safety issues and needs of their organizations.
Road Safety At Work also involves two other projects: Shift into Winter which is focused on reducing the number and severity of road crashes during the winter months and Cone Zone which focuses on improving the safety of all roadside workers in BC.
