The National Safety Council and the American Society of Safety Engineers are promoting a child art contest that promotes the safety benefits of seat belts for drivers.
The American Society of Safety Engineers sponsors North American Occupational Safety and Health Week May 1 through 7 with a focus on "Be Ready, Be Buckled." The art contest urges bus, truck and all other drivers to wear their seat belts to help save lives and reduce injuries in crashes. The contest is geared towards children who have "a relationship with individuals or organizations in the trucking and bus industries."

Contest winners will be honored at the 9th annual ASSE kids' “Safety-on-the-Job” poster contest awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on May 2 as part of the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week kick-off events.
