It’s not falls, fires or chemical exposure that kills workers the most on the job. OSHA reports that motor vehicle crashes are actually the leading cause of death in the workplace today. As most industries must ship or transport products across the country every day, employers must be aware of the dangers associated with distracted driving.
Anytime you take your eyes off the road, hands off the wheel or let your mind wander, you’re considered a distracted driver. Did you know texting is one of the most destructive forms of distracted driving? Even just glancing at your phone for a brief moment can put lives at risk.
Employers must issue online safety training, create best practice guidelines and ban cell phone use while driving. Just remember: Distracted driving is dangerous driving.
