3. Goal To engage businesses in the development and long-term growth of Safe Communities locally and nationally through a commitment to: Workplace, transportation, home, and community safety On-going support

4. How do businesses think about safety?

5. Corporate stakeholders understand the positive impact of safety: On employee health and well-being On the bottom line Corporate stakeholders understand that: A safety management system is core to that success A safety management system is comprised of three types of elements administrative and managerial operational and technical cultural and behavioral

6. Corporate stakeholders know that safety: Requires commitment and leadership Requires both reactive and proactive measures Requires continuous improvement

7. What does the data tell businesses about safety?

8. Trends - Overall Slides 50-53 show the trends in death rates for total unintentional-injuries and the three venues using index numbers. The indexes are based on 1992 rates because that was the year that the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries was adopted for the Work venue final count. The index number for a given year is found by dividing the rate for that year by the rate for 1992 and multiplying by 100. The Motor Vehicle rate is deaths per 100 million vehicle-miles. The Work rate is deaths per 100,000 workers. The Home and Community rate and Total U-I rate are deaths per 100,000 population. Indexes less than 100 indicate improvement since 1992. Historical death rates may be found in Injury Facts®. Slides 50-53 show the trends in death rates for total unintentional-injuries and the three venues using index numbers.
