Road Safety Solutions

Motor-vehicle incidents (MVIs) are the leading cause of traumatic workplace fatalities in Ontario. If you have employees who drive for work, whether it is a commercial vehicle, company vehicle, or personal vehicle, you need to manage the risks associated with driving. The Road Safety Solutions Web resources are designed to help employers understand their obligations when it comes to road safety and how to implement effective and practical prevention strategies. The tools that are available are free and easy to use and are designed to support an employer who doesn’t know where to start when it comes to managing road safety or an employer who already has an effective program in place but wants to add a little more to complement their efforts.

The road safety solutions web page includes free customizable policies, procedures, safety talks, YouTube videos, tip sheets, posters, and a new e-learning option for IHSA’s Preventing Work-Related Motor Vehicle Incidents course which will break down specialized road safety practices and processes into manageable steps that employers can implement at their workplaces.

Policy and Program Templates

The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires every workplace with more than five employees to have a written health & safety policy and a program to implement that policy. There are certain key elements that form the basis of a successful health & safety program.

IHSA has collected some helpful resources, such as sample templates, checklists, and forms, that address these key elements. These resources will help you establish a good foundation for writing and implementing a health & safety policy and program or identifying any areas where changes are needed to your current program.

Whether you're developing a new health & safety program or improving on your existing one, select the document that applies to your workplace or type of work and modify it to suit your company's requirements.
