Driver Safety: Where the Rubber Meets the Road
**Approved for 2 SHRM credits and 1 HRCI credit.**
Do your employees drive to off-site meetings or run company errands? If so, please join us for an informative seminar to get up to speed on driver safety and what constitutes an effective vehicle safety program.
Vehicle collisions are among the most costly injury claims for businesses in terms of both finances and the welfare of employees. On and off the job crashes cost employers whenever they occur and are estimated to amount to $60 billion annually. Moreover, vehicle collision-related deaths accounted for over 25% of the total reported occupational fatalities in 2015.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports driver behavior as a contributing factor in 94% of traffic collisions, meaning these costs, injuries, and fatalities are preventable. In today’s world, it is essential for organizations to develop a comprehensive driver safety program to reduce and ultimately eliminate vehicle collisions.
Attendees will leave with an understanding of:
- Written policies and recordkeeping
- Program roles and responsibilities
- Driver selection, monitoring, and training
- Motor vehicle record assessment
- Vehicle inspection and maintenance
- Collision reporting, investigation, and analysis
