Every 12 seconds someone dies in a motor vehicle crash, every 10 seconds an injury occurs and every 5 seconds a crash occurs. Many of these incidents occur during the work day or during the commute to and from work.
Businesses incur enormous economic costs each year from traffic crashes through loss of productivity, workers’ compensation, medical costs, substitute labor and higher insurance premiums. Employers pay for injuries both on and off the job, costing companies about $60 billion annually and resulting in three million lost work days.
Whether you manage a fleet of vehicles, oversee a mobile sales force or simply employ commuters, by implementing a driver safety program in the workplace, you can improve your company's safety culture and greatly reduce the risks faced by your employees and their families while protecting your company’s bottom line.
