As a business owner, it is imperative that you enforce sound safety procedures around the workplace. This is extremely important if your company depends on employees to operate machinery or company vehicles. With distracted driving being one of the leading causes of collisions on the road, it is important that you start practicing these ways to eliminate the worry of employees partaking in distracted driving:
- The last thing you want is for an employee to cause a fatal accident while texting and driving in one of your company vehicles. Therefore, set in place strict rules against this deadly habit. You may want to consider installing Bluetooth devices into each company vehicle in case a phone call is necessary.
- Stating the rules just once will not provide you with peace of mind that everyone is following them. We recommend holding monthly safety meetings to reinforce the rules and emphasizing their importance.
- Most importantly, be an example and do not promote distracted driving. Following the rules yourself will make employees more inclined to listen.
