NETS is an employer-led advocate for global road safety and is chartered as a nonprofit non-governmental organization (NGO). Its advocacy for global road safety includes an annual fleet safety benchmark program on behalf of its members, in addition to promoting the Decade of Action for Road Safety through its involvement in the United Nations Road Safety Collaboration (UNRSC). NETS works in partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, industry associations and NGOs to conduct road safety-related projects and promote road safety throughout their network.

- preparing to initiate a ROAD SAFETY program;
- in the early stages of policy and program development;
- managing more mature road safety management systems and interventions
