AMARILLO – The City of Amarillo and Texas Mutual Insurance Company are launching the Give Safety a Hand campaign today from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Amarillo Civic Center Regency Room.

The campaign aims to reduce the number of driving-related injuries and fatalities for oil and gas workers, in Amarillo.

The public education campaign helps drivers with the ways and tools needed to be safe on the road.

It will also provide resources for employers to talk with employees about the importance of driving safely.


Last year, motor vehicle accidents accounted for more than 18 percent of all accidents in the oil and gas industry statewide, among Texas Mutual policyholders.
