||Risky driving behaviors expose a company to risk and liability. Transportation incidents are the leading cause of occupational fatalities. Transportation safety is one of the most important parts of an employer’s health and safety management system. An average workplace motor vehicle crash costs an employer more than $24,000. If the employee is injured, the average cost increases to more than $125,000. In recent years, numerous plaintiffs have filed and won multi-million-dollar actions against employers for injuries arising from negligent driving of an employee who was distracted by the use of a cell phone. This session will discuss activities that are a distraction and review employer liability and policies that can reduce risk exposure and protect employees. Best practices will be shared. Educating your employees and having a distracted driving policy in place doesn’t just make good safety sense; it makes good business sense.|

She did a great job in presenting, the class was engaged and asking questions. The time went by so fast it left me wanting to hear more.
Good presentation and eye opening information on the distractions of driving and how they affect the everyday employee at work and on personal travel.
