New guidelines designed to reduce motor vehicle accidents
The 32-page Guidelines for Employers to Reduce Motor Vehicle Crashes offers information to help employers design an effective driver safety program in their workplace. The guidelines feature a ten-step program outlining what an employer can do to improve traffic safety performance and minimize the risk of motor vehicle crashes.
The guidelines include:
- a detailed section on the causes of aggressive, distracted, drowsy and impaired driving and tips for avoiding such behavior on the road;
- success stories from employers who have benefited from effective driver safety programs;
- a sample worksheet for calculating the costs of motor vehicle crashes to employers.
