Faculty

Jeff Griffith.  Jeff Griffith is the regional planner for the Ministry of Transportation’s Road Safety Marketing Office in North Bay. He is responsible for working with the many community partners and stakeholders in Northeastern Ontario to develop and promote various road safety initiatives. Jeff was just one of several community partners who worked collaboratively on this ATV safety project which has now become a provincial initiative. In this session, Mr. Griffith will discuss ATV safety. With ATVs becoming more and more popular for recreation and transportation in Northeastern Ontario, comes the need to educate the public of the inherent risks associated with ATV riding. In recognizing this, the Mattawa Road Safety Committee has partnered with Connecting Community Partners in Injury Prevention to develop a unique set of ATV safety public education products.
