New “safety mirrors” are being deployed throughout the district to remind Postal Service drivers to wear their seatbelts. The mirrors come equipped with seatbelts or tape that mimics belts; when an employee looks at the mirror, their reflection reminds them to buckle up.

The district, part of Capital Metro Area, has installed the new mirrors in every office where carriers depart for the street.

Other districts in the area are adopting this approach. A mirror in Northern Virginia District has a sign that reads, “Seat belts save lives. You are the key to your safety.”

“This proactive approach to bolster employee safety ties into the Postal Service’s overall goal of creating and maintaining safe workplaces and practices,” said Chief Operating Officer Dave Williams. “It emphasizes personal responsibility as we build a stronger safety culture together.”
