VIENNA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 23, 2020--

The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) has released a new Driven to Wellness website developed by NETS through a cooperative agreement with NHTSA. The campaign, geared toward employers, helps integrate often overlooked employee wellness components into a road safety program. Driver wellness and safety is critical to preventing crashes.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:

The campaign toolkit includes a number of valuable concepts and proven solutions on how employees can reach a healthy body weight and increase sleep, as well as tips on how to become more physically active to develop and maintain better health which ultimately improves safety on the road. For maximum impact the toolkit is organized into 5 essential components comprised of the following core wellness elements: physical wellness; work-life balance; impaired driving; healthy vehicles; and how to develop a wellness plan.
