Seat Belt Policy
Last September, the IMWCA Informer shared an article on the pool’s renewed emphasis regarding our members adopting and implementing mandatory seat belt usage policies, such as setting a policy expectation for all employees to utilize available seat belts in all vehicles while working within their scope of duties for the member.
This effort is in response to an increase in severe injuries and one fatality due to employees not wearing their seat belts. IMWCA conducted a similar effort many years ago for similar reasons and successfully reduced serious injuries and fatalities.
Keep Iowa Safe provides a snapshot of passenger vehicle

strategies for increasing the use of seat belts, car seats, and
booster seats. The information can help decision makers and
community partners see gaps and identify relevant strategies
to encourage people to always buckle up. See the stats.
