Driving Safety

Let’s face it: most people in this country drive to get to and from things they need to do, especially for work. They face a varying array of potential roadway issues as they start the car and pull out into the world of drivers. There are so many things that can go wrong driving that we have organizations like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, to specifically assist with roadway safety methods and practices. They have a campaign motto that states, “think safe, ride safe, be safe” that not only applies to those everyday travelers but also to those who have workplace driving responsibilities. As an employer, you want to be positive that your cargo and workers get from point A to point B and back quickly but most importantly safely. That is when you can turn to TrainingABC who has been helping employers with their training needs since 1995. We have a large selection of workplace driving safety videos to establish employee comprehension and compliance. Check out these training videos and view the free previews on the product description of each training session.

It is said that “every 12 minutes someone dies in a motor vehicle crash, every 10 seconds an injury occurs and every 5 seconds a crash occurs.” Most of these incidents occur during the workday, including the commute to and from work. Employers must take these facts into consideration since they will more than likely have an effect on their workforce, whether it be an on-the-job driving incident or on an employee’s commute. That is why organizations like the Network of Employers for Traffic Safety and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration work together to promote safe driving programs in the workplace. It not only helps to protect the employees but the employer’s bottom line as well. The employer loses if there are on-the-job motor vehicle accidents and if an employee cannot work because of a commuting accident. Motor vehicle crashes cost employers $60 billion yearly with the average cost of one crash being $16,500 to the employer. Not only does the employer lose money on medical care and legal expenses, property damage and lost productivity, but these incidents drive up the cost of Social Security payments, insurance coverage and worker’s compensation.

Driver safety training protects the employee but especially benefits the employer, more specifically their wallet. These programs help to protect a company's human and financial resources, reduce the risk of life-altering injuries to the employees, protect against personal and company liabilities in on-the-job driving accidents and can even save lives. Once these programs are in place an employer can even extend this offer to family members of employees thereby ensuring a more trustworthy, safe and dependable worker. Workplace driver safety training also ensures adherence to guidelines provided by such organizations as the Employment Standards Administration (ESA), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). TrainingABC.com’s driver safety training videos and DVDs provide an employer with the money-saving advantage and security of safely trained workers.
