Public Health has an obligation under the Ontario Public Health Standards (OPHS) to contribute to reducing the frequency, severity, and impact of preventable injury.  These contributions, alone or in partnership, are designed to increase community and individual capacity to create safe and supportive environments, to emphasize that injuries are predictable and preventable, and to influence related behaviours and policy. The OPHS specifically identifies road and off-road safety as a focus for these activities.
