Driving Safety

Description:

Accident report studies, conducted by risk management organizations, indicate that the majority of reportable accidents are the result of veteran employees failing to pay attention or trying to shortcut the fundamental safety practices they learned when they first started their job. With this in mind, the Safety Series is designed to remind employees of the potential risks that may exist during the performance of their jobs. Rather than introducing safety training, the Safety Series provides a reminder of good safety practices, or “refresher” training, aimed at fulfilling OSHA requirements of regular safety meetings for field staff. Beyond the personal benefits of employee participation in safety training, employers can experience a significant reduction in lost work time and worker’s compensation claims due to injuries. In addition, less time is lost completing and filing accident reports, with an added benefit of reduced insurance premiums, leading to significant financial savings.

 

Safe driving practices are the responsibility of all motorists. In this era, many people have developed motoring habits that could compromise their own safety as well as the safety of others. Although targeted to employees that drive company–owned trucks, the Driving Safety course is appropriate for all employees that drive. At minimum, the non-driver of company–owned trucks will gain an appreciation for some of the challenges and responsibilities that come with driving a company-owned automobile.
