It’s National Safety Month: Keep Your Employees Safe.
Posted on 06/14/2013 by AKilgore | 0 Comments
June is National Safety Month. And this year, the National Safety Council is celebrating 100 years of safety! So what exactly is National Safety Month? It’s an “annual observance to educate and influence behaviors around leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths” (NSC). The theme this year is “Safety Starts with Me,” and focuses on encouraging organizations to get everyone involved in safety and creating a culture where everyone is a safety leader.
While the main focus of this year’s theme is OSHA and onsite safety, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t address offsite safety too. After all, your employees do have to drive from job to job, don’t they?
It’s not always easy addressing driver safety issues, but a driver safety solution can help. Here’s a look at what a complete driver safety solution includes and how it can help:
1. Online Driver Training Courses: with online training courses, you can proactively engage and coach your drivers to be safer behind the wheel, reducing risks and saving your company money.
2. Distracted Driving Solution: utilizing distracted driving technology that prevents your drivers from using their cell-phone will not only keep your drivers focused on the road, it ensures driver safety and can help reduce at-fault accident rates.
3. Driver Safety Scorecard Report: a driver safety scorecard report provides insight into how your employees drive by identifying aggressive driving behaviors like speeding, harsh braking, sudden corning etc. Being able to pinpoint drivers that are in need of coaching and improvement can help increase driver safety and reduce the number of driving-related incidents.
