Calgary Police Service offer Safe Driving Seminar
to Calgary Businesses
Each year nearly 400 people are killed and more than 27,000 injured in
vehicle collisions in Alberta. These collisions impact families, communities
and businesses alike and cost Albertans $4 billion annually. S adly it is
recognized that most of these collisions are preventable.
Alberta Human Resources and Employment cite motor vehicle collisions as
the leading cause of on-the-job injuries and death in the province. Impaired
driving and general bad driving habits are recognized as leading causes of
these collisions. Bad driving habits translate to lost time, reduced
productivity and increased safety and injury claim costs.
Bad driving impacts all of us but these effects can be offset by making a few
simple changes. A proactive approach to driver education can not only
reduce lost time at work and employer s potential liability, it can also
reduce the heartache that goes along with such tragedies.
In an effort to enhance traffic safety, the Calgary Police Service - Traffic
Education Unit is offering educational seminars for employers that would
like to join with us and promote a safe driving culture.
The S afe Driving to S ave Lives seminar is designed to educate and
enhance individual awareness regarding the importance of safe driving
habits and how such behaviours contribute to workplace safety. These
interactive presentations normally take two hours and can be tailored to
address specific areas of concern, and best of all they are free for Calgary-
area businesses. Please call Constable Chisholm of Traffic Education Unit at
403-567-4042 to book a free seminar for your employees.
