What Is Corporate Outreach?

It is all about partnering with the corporate community to help save lives on our state roadways through information, education and awareness. For more information, please contact OHS Corporate Outreach Coordinator Patricia Bachman by email at patricia.bachman@state.de.us.

About Corporate Outreach

Corporate Outreach Programs was implemented in 2006 to address the growing need of businesses to educate their employees about the importance of traffic safety both on and off the clock. Over the last several years the program has grown in size and scope to include non-profit and state-run agencies. Corporate Outreach is committed to finding effective ways to reach the people who live and work in Delaware with consistent information on a limited budget of time and money..

To reach the greatest number of people, Corporate Outreach uses the following tools to help managers reach their audience:


Traffic Safety News is an e-newsletter created to help managers and safety advocates share current traffic safety information with their co-workers. The format is simple, easy to read, easy to print, and easy to forward to an internal distribution list. The information contained within each electronic newsletter is based on the traffic safety hot topic of the month and is divided into two easy to read sections: What You Need to Know and What You Can Do.

In addition, partners who produce an internal company newsletter may elect to receive a once monthly newsletter article to include in their monthly newsletter.


Each business or agency that participates in Corporate Outreach can sign up for a regular mailing of promotional traffic safety materials. For each traffic safety campaign OHS produces quantities of posters, flyers, and table tents. The number and type of materials each partner receives is based on the needs of the company and the number of employees. Corporate Outreach recommends one poster per bulletin board, one flyer per employee, and one table tent per table in a break area or cafeteria.


The Corporate Partners meetings bring safety managers together with highway safety advocates in a round table format to discuss effective ways to bring the safety message to diverse groups of employees. Two partners meetings are held every year in the months of March and September.

Once a year, Corporate Outreach gathers together our partners that administer large fleets of vehicles and drivers. Fleet administrators from both the public and private sector meet to discuss the unique challenges of maintaining the safety of large fleets of vehicles and drivers.

At least once a year, corporate partners who serve the Hispanic community gather to discuss outreach efforts and their effectiveness.


At the September Corporate Partners meeting, Corporate Outreach awards companies that have done an outstanding job working with OHS in outreach to their employees.

Click It Or Ticket - Buckle Up: Corporate Outreach Information

  • The Office of Highway Safety strongly recommends that companies have a written seat belt policy for company vehicles and personal vehicles used for company business. Drivers are more likely to report higher seat belt use on the job if they thought their company had a seat belt policy. See the links below for information on "Seat belt use on the job" and sample Seat Belt Policy.
