Important Safety Web Sites

Posted on 16 January 2019 by Monica Zech

The following are web sites I highly recommend that offer important safety information:

  • Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is an independent, nonprofit, scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries, and property damage — from crashes on the nation’s highways. Excellent web site!
  • MADD – Mother’s Against Drunk Driving MADD 24-Hour Live Helpline.  This number provides emotional support, guidance, and referrals are now available to victims/survivors of drunk driving, as well as friends and families, around the clock through a toll-free helpline. If you are a victim of drunk driving in need of assistance, please call MADD’s toll-free helpline at 1-877-MADD-HELP to speak with a counselor who is ready to help you.
  • Mesothelioma.net – Comprehensive information on mesothelioma cancer and the dangers of asbestos – www.mesothelioma.net
  •  National Highway Traffic Safety Administration – NHTSA is responsible for reducing deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes.  This is accomplished by setting and enforcing safety performance standards for motor vehicles and through grants to state and local governments to enable them to conduct effective local highway safety programs.
  • NationalRoadSafety.org The National Road Safety Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3)non-profit charitable organization dedicated to reducing collisions, death, and injuries on our nation’s highways by promoting safe driving habits through greater public awareness.
  • SAFER Car.gov another excellent site for checking the safety of the vehicle you already own – or are looking to buy. How would your vehicle stand up to a collision? Check here!

For Children:

  • Childrens Safety Network The Children’s Safety Network is composed of several resource centers funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. CSN provides technical assistance, training, and resources to MCH and other injury prevention professionals in an extensive effort to reduce the burden of injury and violence to our nation’s children and adolescents. CSN works with state and local departments of public health, maternal and child health (MCH) directors and staff, and injury prevention and control program directors and staff.

For Everyone:
