Posted on 04/15/2013 by Adrienne Sallerson | 0 Comments
Construction work can be physically demanding and highly dangerous. And for construction professionals, you know the importance of following OSHA and other rules to ensure construction sites are safe. If one of your workers is injured on the job, you could be the one facing the heavy consequences. But along with making sure your workers are safe on the job, are you taking proactive measures to ensure your workers are safe when traveling the roadways?
When your workers are driving to and from job sites throughout the week, implementing a driver safety solution is crucial. Do your workers drive company vehicles with your logo stamped on the side? If so, consider your vehicles to be a moving advertisement for your company. If your workers are speeding or driving aggressively, your business is giving off a pretty poor first impression to the public, which isn’t going to win you over more customers.
Not only that, but if one of your workers were to cause an accident on the roadway, it’s you that could be held liable. Do you really want to risk facing heavy fines and a damaged reputation? By utilizing a driver safety solution, you can monitor driver behaviors such as speeding, aggressive driving, hard braking, harsh acceleration, sudden cornering and so on. Being able to monitor these types of behaviors allows you to pinpoint which of your workers need reinforcing and which are practicing safe driving habits. So, ensure your workers are safe on the job and on the road with the proper safety solutions for your business.
