Equipment & Controls, Inc., the leading regional provider of process control and automation solutions, joins the Road to Zero Coalition. Launched in 2016 as a partnership between the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Safety Council, the Road to Zero Coalition has the goal of ending fatalities on our nation’s roads by 2050.
Tens of thousands of people die on U.S. roads every year, and the fatality trend is going in the wrong direction. After a decade of record declines, traffic fatalities are increasing. To reverse this trend, the Road to Zero Coalition promotes proven lifesaving strategies and leads the development of a new scenario-based vision on how to achieve zero traffic deaths with evidence-based strategies and a systematic approach to eliminating risks.
“Safety is a strong part of ECI’s culture and we are proud to support the effort to reduce traffic fatalities,” explained Brandon Bajek, ECI Safety Manager. “Whether driving while working or during personal time, our employees’ safety is our top priority. Raising awareness and encouraging active engagement in safe driving practices are part of our effort on the road to zero.”
