Safety official tries to help Wyoming reduce traffics deaths
One of the issues surrounding workplace safety is the number of serious highway crashes related to work. In fact, 2010 statistics show that better than half of the fatalities in Wyoming were transportation related. Colonel Mark Trostel is the former head of the Colorado Highway Patrol. During his time that state went from have one of the lowest traffic safety records to the fifth best. He is currently working to improve Encana’s traffic safety record and so far so good. Trostel has been chosen to help Wyoming find ways to improve its ranking. We caught up with him during a recent presentation in Gillette. Trostel says the first thing Wyoming needs to do is to get more information.
