Statement from the National Safety Council on National Heatstroke Awareness Day

Itasca, IL – In observance of today as National Heatstroke Awareness Day, the National Safety Council is calling on parents and caregivers to look before they lock, and on all states to implement laws to address children being left in cars (click for more info). Twenty-nine children have perished this year after being left or trapped in hot cars, and 30 states lack legislation to combat the issue, according to the National Safety Council State of Safety report. The report deemed just two states “On Track” when it comes to child passenger safety, in part because so few have any laws to tackle vehicular heatstroke deaths. We can, and must, do better.

Actions are being taken at the federal level. A pending House bill would require vehicles to have backseat devices to notify drivers when a child is still in the car. A similar bill has been introduced in the Senate. But states should not wait to take action. Twenty-nine deaths – including two in as many days in Phoenix last weekend – should prompt lightning-fast response.

We carry our most precious cargo – our children – in the backseat. Let’s make sure they are safe not only when the vehicle is moving but also after it is parked and locked.

Free Kit Helps Employers Stop the Leading Cause of Workplace Death

Safe Driving Kit from the National Safety Council Aims to Drive Down Crashes

Itasca, IL – The National Safety Council released a first-of-its-kind Safe Driving Kit to help employers eliminate the number one cause of workplace deaths – car crashes. The Safe Driving Kit, sponsored by Wheels, Inc., is a free online tool built to create safer roads and protect employees through multi-media resources and engaging materials. The kit addresses the key contributors to car crashes, including distraction, alcohol, other drugs, fatigue and seatbelt use. It also brings attention to lifesaving technology that helps prevent crashes during a time when motor vehicle deaths spike in part due to summer travel.

“Every 7 seconds someone is injured and every 15 minutes someone is killed in a car crash,” said Jenny Burke, senior director of Advocacy at the National Safety Council. “The Safe Driving Kit will help us eliminate preventable deaths at work and on the road.”

Car crashes cost employers upwards of $68 billion in comprehensive costs every year. Workplace policies and employer engagement can help reduce crashes and promote health and wellness on and off the job.

The Safe Driving Kit is now available for download at www.nsc.org/safedrivingkit

Preventable Deaths Have Reached an All-Time High, according to the National Safety Council State of Safety report. These fatalities – occurring on the road, in homes and communities and in the workplace – eclipsed 146,000 in 2015, prompting the Council to call for state actions that are proven to reduce residents’ risks.
