Things you can do today
To support the mission of the
Telecommuting Safety & Health Benefits Institute
 

SPREAD THE WORD
-Tell your friends and family about us and point them to our web site.
 
-Post a printed copy of our TSHBI Home Page (click here) someplace where it can be seen by others (bulletin board at work, library, stores - wherever commuters might read it).
 
-Ask your Internet Service Provider to list the TSHBI website on the list of links (many search engines, such as Webcrawler, Netfind, Infoseek, AltaVista, Excite, Galaxy and YaHoo, already have TSHBI listed in their indexes).
 
-If you have a Web Page of your own, be sure to put us on your list of links or "favorite sites".
 
"GRASS ROOTS" EFFORT --- For a brief message you can forward to others, click here.
 
-Ask other people to do the things on this list, too, if they would like to support our mission.
 
By doing any or all of these things you help us to spread the word. The more people are aware of our mission, the better, as it is a very good cause that can make a difference.
 
  
SEND US SOME INFORMATION
 
RELATED TO SAFETY:
- Tell us about a car crash you (or someone you know) were involved in while commuting to or from a job that could have easily been performed by telecommuting from home, instead.
 
- Tell us about a car crash you (or someone you know) were involved in where another person involved in the accident might have been able to telecommute, instead, if their employer encouraged telecommuting. [In this case, if that other person would have been home doing their work, instead of crowding the highways, you (or someone you know) might never have been hurt.]
 
ABOUT HEALTH: 
- Tell us about improvements to your health that would occur, if you were to telecommute, or damage to your health that has occurred, because you have not telecommuted.
 
 
ABOUT BOTH SAFETY AND HEALTH:
- Tell us about other efforts you are aware of where employees and/or employers are now using telecommuting and have identified that one of the reasons they have decided to use telecommuting is to improve safety or health of workers and the general public.
 
 
SPONSOR OUR WORK
-Become a corporate, governmental, or private contributor to our cause (click here for more details about TSHBI).
 
 
DRIVE SAFELY, WHENEVER YOU MUST COMMUTE
-Be alert, drive defensively, be courteous, and don't speed.
 
 
TELECOMMUTE, WHENEVER YOU POSSIBLY CAN
-If you can perform an activity by using your computer, a modem, a fax and/or a phone, do that. You can go as fast as you want on the information highway and the only thing that may crash is your computer... 8-)
 
 
Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.
