VERIZON Safety Minutes:
December is National Impaired Driving Prevention Month.
Every day in the U.S. 20 people die in a motor vehicle crash that involved an alcohol-impaired driver, and 20% of all crashes are caused by drivers under the influence of drugs.
Here are some things to consider before getting behind the wheel:
Safety is no accident.
OSHA exists because safety is no accident. Business leaders hire safety experts and consult the guidelines and regulations according to bodies like OSHA that make it their mission to help businesses keep employees safe.
Leave sooner, drive slower, live longer.
This slogan is true for everyone, whether driving for work in a delivery truck or commuting to and from work. Encourage employees to prepare for any work-related departures as early as possible, so they don’t find themselves running late and rushing. You never want your employees to feel rushed, which might lead them to exceed the speed limit or disregard any road rules.
