Janet Froetscher, president & CEO of the National Safety Council, will close out the final day ofNAFA Fleet Management Assn.’s 2013 Institute & Expo with a keynote presentation.
Under Froetscher’s leadership, the National Safety Council has focused on key safety initiatives to advance its mission of preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads. These initiatives include the creation of the Journey to Safety Excellence approach to workplace safety that promotes continuous improvement of leadership and performance measurement. Froetscher has also led the council in taking a leadership role on the issues of distracted and teen driving.
The National Safety Council was the first organization to call for a national ban on cell phone use while driving; has driven 34 states to pass texting laws; and has encouraged corporations to adopt corporate cell phone bans. The council has also been successful in advocating for better graduated driving license requirements for teen drivers and in promoting education for parents of teen drivers.
“NAFA is thrilled to have Janet Froetscher speak before our membership,” said NAFA’s Executive Director, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “Ms. Froetscher’s impressive body of work was recognized by our association last year when she was named as one of the initial inductees of NAFA’s Safety Leadership Award. She is an authority on a subject that is of great importance to every fleet manager.”
Prior to joining the National Safety Council, Froetscher served as CEO of the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago and COO of the Aspen Institute.
