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.
