En Route to Safety is a non-profit program created by Wilfrid Laurier University’s Safety, Health, Environment & Risk Management (SHERM) department, and funded though the Ontario Ministry of Labour’s Occupational Health and Safety Prevention Innovation Program.
The En Route to Safety program offers Ontario business owners free resources and online training for workers who drive, walk or cycle on the job, with the goal of reducing injuries and fatalities caused by motor vehicle incidents on Ontario roads.
The program includes:
The guidebook was created for Ontario employers who may not have a dedicated health and safety employee on staff, and who may not even have much knowledge of health and safety practices aside from basic mandatory regulatory requirements.
The goal was to take these somewhat complex, specialized health and safety processes and break them down into accessible steps employers can apply directly to their workplaces. The hope is that the guidebook – when combined with the employee training modules – will provide Ontario business owners with a solid foundation to be able to give traffic safety the attention it deserves in the workplace.
The program was made possible through the generous help of many Ontario municipalities, police services, private businesses, and health and safety professionals who donated their time, materials and expertise. A list of partners, contributors and supporters can be found in the Our Supporters section.
