Committed to road safety and accident prevention
Because we are convinced that the great majority of non-intentional injuries is avoidable, we work to prevent accidents occurring at home and incidents taking place on the road, which are the ones that lead mostly to serious and fatal injuries. To attain this goal, we support research in the field of injury prevention that allows us to design the initiatives and programs most adequate to the challenges we face.
Our main focus of attention is: educating children and youths so that they know how to avoid risk situations such as traffic accidents, fires, incidents at home and drownings. We seek to raise awareness among all members of society in the United States, mainly those responsible for making public policy, professionals and workers in general, so that they understand that when working together, it is possible to achieve thegoal of zero serious and fatal injuries.
