|Road Safety at Work|
Every day thousands of workers in British Columbia drive while they're on the job - not only couriers and truck drivers but also sales people, homecare workers, utility workers and countless others.
Driving can be risky. In fact, occupational motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of deaths in British Columbia. On average, 24 workers are killed in crashes each year. Between 2006 and 2010 the cost of claims to WorkSafeBC stemming from car crashes involving workers was almost $42 million.
