Safety Awareness Day

Q. Our Safety and Health Team is putting together a proposal for a “Safety Awareness Day” for this Fall. Because most of our drivers work from home and are spread out all across the United States, we will be conducting this “Safety Awareness Day” as a webinar.

We would like your input as to what you believe could be a good topic for our sales and service team. We have approximately 760 drivers, and they drive mid-size automobiles and light trucks, typically pickup trucks.

What topic would you recommend for our Driver Safety segment?

Alert… Behind the Wheel

Q. During the month of April, our safety team was heavily involved with promoting safe driving within our company. We have some sales reps, but most of our drivers are field technicians who work at several different locations throughout the day. During some of our group safety discussions, many drivers acknowledged that they frequently cannot even recall the drive between locations because they are so focused on what the next issue/job may be.

We need some good information to share with our drivers. They are good guys who do a great job, but I am concerned about the issue of distractions we uncovered this month.
