A record-setting attendance of more than 180 fleet safety professionals and sponsors gathered for the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) Strength in Numbers Benchmark Conference held Oct. 12 to 13, 2016, in Orlando, Fla.

NETS is a public-private partnership dedicated exclusively to reducing traffic crashes both on and off the job. For the first time, the 2016 conference was opened to non-NETS member companies that operate fleet vehicles. This was also the first NETS conference presided by Joe McKillips, the group’s newly named executive director.

The 2016 conference agenda included a diverse group of speakers from academia, global private-sector companies, performance management consulting firms, as well as a keynote address from Bella Dinh-Zarr, Ph.D., of the National Transportation Safety Board. One of the highlights of the conference was the release of the NETS annual Strength in Numbers Fleet Safety Benchmark Report that is only available to NETS members.

Companies attending the conference came from diverse business segments, including pharmaceutical, oil and gas, food and beverage, insurance, utilities, manufacturing, and other industries.

More information on NETS can be found on the organization’s website.
