Driving to work is what a majority of us do everyday whether rain sleet or shine. Over time though we are all guilty of being a bit lazy when it comes to driving safety. Each year, traffic accidents claim over 30,000 lives and cause more than a million serious injuries. In fact, motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death on the job. Our training products on Driving Safety provide the information employees need to drive cars, vans and small trucks safely, both on and off the job. Topics covered in these products include: Inspecting the vehicle, adjusting seats, mirrors and other equipment, wearing seatbelts, mental preparation and concentration, creating a safety cushion around your vehicle, passing another vehicle and much more.
Workplace Vehicle Safety - Unlike other workplaces, the roadway is not a closed environment. Preventing work-related roadway crashes requires strategies that combine traffic safety principles and sound safety management practices. Although employers cannot control roadway conditions, they can promote safe driving behavior by providing safety information to workers and by setting and enforcing driver safety policies. Crashes are not an unavoidable part of doing business.
