As the Safety Scents concept started to evolve into a product line, we felt something more needed to be done regarding the cause behind our idea. We came into contact with an inspiring and driven lady by the name of Karen Bowman, founder of a Canadian grass roots organization committed to raising awareness for distracted driving. We immediately decided to partner up with her organization ‘Drop It And Drive’, an educational organization based in British Columbia dedicated to promoting the awareness of the deadly consequences of distracted driving. As a result of our partnership, a portion of all proceeds is donated to them on our behalf to help support their national no-fee school program.
Education programs and information campaigns are essential in continuing to raise awareness about the level of risk involved with distracted driving and the toll it’s taking on our communities. The combination of enforcement, education, continuing research and creative thinking are working together to change attitudes about driving behaviours, helping to reduce preventable road crash injuries and fatalities.
High School Workshops:
Delivering reality-based presentations to high school students provides the opportunity to positively impact the next generation of drivers to help reduce road crash injuries and fatalities. Drinking and driving took a full generation–25 years–to become socially unacceptable; too many more lives will be lost if it takes that long for distracted driving to become equally unacceptable.
Corporate Risk Mgmt Workshops:
The corporate risk management and employee safety program is ideal for OH&S (Occupational Health and Safety) and HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) directors seeking relevant & topical seminars in the forestry, oil & gas, mining, transport, courier, taxi/limousine, public transportation, waste management, sales & construction industries. In addition to their popular corporate worker/employee seminar, Drop It And Drive has just launch a supervisor/employer seminar and Supplemental Training Program to meet workplace safety needs. Drop It And Drive offers the only corporate program of its kind in Canada/North America. ‘Working together to reduce preventable workplace injuries and fatalities caused by distractions in the workplace.’
D.I.A.D. Drop It And Drive works in partnership with the Surrey Fire Service, the Surrey RCMP and with the support of Klein Lyons to deliver high energy, interactive talks to schools, community groups, organizations and corporations across Canada and the US.
