At Republic Services, our top value is Safe: We protect the livelihoods of our colleagues and communities. As a Company with well over half of our employees on the road every day, all day, distracted driving is a leading concern. We work diligently to educate employees on road safety to ensure everyone gets home safe at the end of the day. But it’s not just our truck drivers who need to be attentive on the road – it’s every employee driving to and from work, and our families.
July is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, a companywide effort to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and eliminate preventable deaths and injuries. The cornerstone of Distracted Driving Awareness Month is Republic Services’ Safe Driver Pledge. We’re asking all employees and their loved ones to take the pledge and commit to saving lives by never driving distracted and speaking up when you see others distracted.
Bonus! Everyone who takes the pledge in July will automatically be entered into a weekly prize drawing for Republic Services summer swag. All employees and family members are eligible to win.
