STS Highlights: January 2022
Each January marks a time when people sit down, take stock, and make resolutions or set goals for themselves. This year we look at Resolution Alternatives with the hopes that they may prove successful and help boost self-confidence and positivity.
If you don’t already know, January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. It’s a hard topic to broach, but it is one that EVERYONE should take the time to learn about. Our friends at Busing On the Lookout and Truckers Against Trafficking provide the training resources you need to make a difference. They now have a School Bus Driver specific course.
In addition, we’ve curated some important safety reminders and resources for the new year.
May this year come with lots of laughter and an abundance of success!
Alternative Suggestions for New Year’s Resolutions

January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month
The pupil transportation industry has a key role to play in combating human trafficking, particularly as frontline employees may be coming into contact with victims of human trafficking in the course of their everyday jobs.
It’s Flu Season!
The CDC’s recommendation for getting a flu vaccine for the 2021-22 flu season is: GET THE SHOT! Flu viruses are constantly changing so it’s not unusual for new ones to appear. A lot of research goes into each year’s vaccine. You should not wait for activity to be rising or high in your community to get a flu shot. The best way to reduce the risk of flu and its potentially serious complications is by getting vaccinated each year.

Prevention Measures to protect against respiratory illness like Covid-19 and Variants remain largely the same.
