Driving and Vehicle Safety Campaign

October 2016

The AWEA Environmental, Health & Safety Committee announces its second wind industry safety campaign: Driving and Vehicle Safety Campaign.  We encourage you to take part in this important safety awareness campaign during the month of October! Participation is free to all AWEA members.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there were 29,989 fatal motor vehicle traffic crashes resulting in 32,675 fatalities in 2014. Of these 29,989 fatal traffic crashes, there were 15,031 (50%) that occurred in rural areas, 14,509 (48%) that occurred in urban areas, and 449 (1%) that occurred in unknown areas. This campaign was designed to help you learn more about vehicle and driving safety and to help shed some light on this important topic.  Please use the materials available on this website to refresh your staff’s training and knowledge on the topic.  

* Data obtained from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and accounts for all crashes across all industries in the U.S.  Data is not specific to the wind industry.
