The Permian Road Safety Coalition: 

  • Celebrated 2nd year anniversary June 2017

  • Best practices shared and adopted by participating companies to aid in coaching – focused on fatigue management, IVMS and taking poor drivers off the road.
  • Built an industry community, focused on road safety (sharing of incidents and issues), who looks out for one another
  • Created a space for government and industry to work together
  • Launched a website and identity campaign
  • Community outreach effort: “Goal Zero: A Day Without Accidents.” – Successfully Achieved Goal Zero!
