National Safety Council Honors Texas Employers with 2019 Our Driving Concern Traffic Safety Awards

16 organizations demonstrate commitment to keeping employees safer on Texas roadways

At least one person has died on Texas roads every day for the last 18½ years. On May 30, 16 Texas employers who have partnered with the National Safety Council and Our Driving Concern were recognized for their commitment to end the unenviable streak.

“It is heartbreaking to know that every day for more than 18 years someone has lost a spouse, a child, a friend or a co-worker,” said Lisa Robinson, a senior program manager with the National Safety Council and head of Our Driving Concern. “Equally alarming is data that shows one person is injured in a crash on Texas roads every two minutes. This underscores the importance of working together to keep everyone safe, and employers have a critical role. We are pleased to see these Texas organizations leading the way, and we are proud to recognize them for their efforts.”

Award recipients ranged from businesses with as few as 200 employees to as many as 10,000, and from nonprofits to municipal organizations. Employee education, training and other activities centered on traffic safety were considered in the evaluation process.

This is the third straight year NSC and Our Driving Concern have called out traffic safety leaders in three categories. This year, four Texas employers went above and beyond to earn Exemplary distinction, making traffic safety a priority both at work and at home:
