The goal of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) over the next two years is to work with every public and private sector organization to increase safety belt use to more than 70%. Special emphasis will be directed to the Federal worksite to help implement this goal. Federal employees comprise one of the largest workforces in the nation, and, therefore, the Federal worksite provides an excellent opportunity for delivering traffic safety messages. In an effort to promote safety and increase safety belt use among Federal employees both on and off the worksite, NHTSA is providing assistance and resources through the Federal Employees Buckle Up Program to encourage traffic safety education and awareness programs for Federal employees. The goals of the Federal Employees Buckle Up Program are to achieve 70% safety belt use among Federal employees, and to encourage agencies to conduct on-going traffic safety programs focusing on the need for safety belts and the dangers of drinking and driving. This manual contains specific guidelines for applying the 70% PLUS Federal Employees Safety Belt Use Program. Tips are given on how to carry out the Buckle Up America! campaign and how to promote highway safety efforts. Also included are fact sheets, a list of state safety belt laws, a listing of written and audio/visual resources, helpful sample materials, and ready-to-use art work.
