Smart phones, tablets, and hand-held computers have turned the vehicle into a mobile office for both blue and white collar workers. This, coupled with productivity demands, creates a significant roadway hazard and contributes to the new universe of roadway risk.
Recent multi-million dollar judgments against corporations whose employees have seriously injured or killed others while using a portable technology while driving has forced companies to come to terms with the significant risk and exposure created by employee on-the-job distracted driving.
Thus, in an effort to limit risk and liability, many companies have enacted policies, procedures, and protocols aimed at eliminating employee distracted driving. However, corporate safe driving policies, although well-intentioned, can create additional legal exposure if there is no follow through with employee training, education, commitment, and enforcement.
The Drive By Example Corporate Protection Program offers a new solution to help businesses integrate driving safety into the workplace, influencing employees to model the safe driving habits and behaviors that protect themselves, their passengers, others of the roadway, and their employer.
The Corporate Protection Program is best described as a driving safety communications campaign and can be easily implemented through a corporate well-ness department, Drive By Example provides corporate training, signs, alerts, and other materials to help instill a safe driving environment.
