Train Your Employees to Avoid the “Fatal Four”, Protect Your Company and Improve Employee Safety
For the second year in a row, more than 40,000 people died in car crashes – the steepest two-year increase in over 50 years.
Don’t wait for the first incident to begin a defensive driving training program for all employees. Decide today to train your employees and protect your most valuable assets – your people and your company. Train employees on driver safety, and implement the H&RS defensive driving safety program.
Now is the time to train your employees about road safety, to improve their defensive driving skills – for safer commuting and driving for work.
For your employees, a motor vehicle incident can have far-reaching effects on their life and family. For your organization, one serious injury or fatality can have a terrible impact on your business operations and bottom line.
In their report COST OF MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES TO EMPLOYERS—2015™ the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) concludes that traffic crashes cost employers $47.4 billion in direct crash-related expenses which include medical care, liability, lost productivity and property damage.
- Train your employees and remind them about safe driving practices
- Answer the question: “What are the fatal four?”
- Establish a driver policy to ban texting and driving for all employees
- Restrict the use of cell phones while driving (hands free option if needed)
- Reduce organizational exposure to negligence claims related to car crashes
- Reduce distracted driving and help prevent motor vehicle crashes
Motivate your employees to be safe and responsible drivers – because so much depends on the decisions they make while on the road.
A new study says crashes caused by distracted driving tend to be more severe than others, raises the odds that a crash will cause severe injury or death, compared with other crashes, particularly if those distraction-related crashes involve rear-end collisions or occur in work zones or on interstate highways.
Our Health and Road Safety – HR safety training program is designed to significantly improve employee driving safety when they commute each day, by directly addressing (and correcting) the “fatal four” leading causes of traffic crashes.
