Employee safety on the road will be covered in two Interior workshops in early October.

Road Safety At Work, an initiative managed by the Justice Institute of BC and funded by WorkSafeBC, is holding the sessions in Kamloops and Kelowna.

Their objective is to reduce work-related accidents and help employers improve the safety of workers who drive for work or who work at the roadside.

The hands-on workshop will help participants develop or improve an occupational road safety program that fits their workplace and follows best-practices.

Participants will learn a process to identify hazards and assess risks, how to develop strategies, and use the tools and resources on the RoadSafetyAtWork.ca website to address the unique road safety issues and needs facing their organization. 

The workshops are intended for owners of large and small companies, managers, supervisors, health and safety practitioners, OHS committee members and others who are responsible for developing programs to keep employees safe on the road.

They take place in Kamloops Oct. 5 at the Double Tree by Hilton and on Oct. 6 at the Kelowna Fire Hall No. 1.
