January 2020 - Volume 7 - Issue 4
Safer Workers Mean Safer Roads for All
Information from The National Safety Council

  • Every 7 seconds, someone is injured in a car crash
  • Every 15 minutes, someone is killed
  • Many of the crashes occur during the work day or the daily commute
  • Employers absorb costs associated with these crashes, whether they occur on or off the job
  • Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of workplace death

Employers have a significant role in reducing vehicle crashes. Through workplace policies and education, employers can help protect their workforce, protect their organizations and, in turn, protect employees' own families and communities.

NSC and its sponsor,  Wheels , have released the  free NSC Safe Driving Toolkit .

  • It helps safety and HR professionals build senior management support for policies and education to influence safer driving behaviors
  • It provides policies and educational materials that look at the top factors in fatal crashes: distraction, alcohol, drugs and fatigue
  • It contains myriad safe driving resources and ready-made communication tools to educate employees, including videos, fact sheets and FAQs, infographics, posters, survivor advocate stories and more
The Summit is hosted by the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Child Abuse Team and the Domestic Violence Enhanced Response Team. Through relevant and thoughtful programming, we hope to reduce harm to children and families. Our goal is to connect agencies, educate individuals, and build community to improve outcomes. Working together, we can stand strong to better serve those you need us most. "The Power of One in Collaboration with Others."

Winter injury prevention - Helmets aren’t just for bikes
If you’ve swapped out your bike for a snowboard, skis or other sport for the winter, helmets are still a crucial part of reducing your risk of brain and spinal cord injuries.

One crash and the helmet is trash- Helmets are only designed to absorb one impact. Replace after any and all crashes or falls.

Helmets must fit to be effective- They should rest level and snug on your forehead about 1” above your eyebrows. Straps must be adjusted to form a “V” around each ear, with room for 1-2 fingers under the chinstrap.

Helmets are for everyone- Both kids and the adults they look up to can increase their safety by wearing a helmet. 

You can schedule a presentation or inquire about volunteer opportunities by emailing
