Every day, more than eight people are killed and more than 1,000 are injured in crashes involving distracted driving, including activities such as talking on a cell phone, texting and eating.  

So how do you protect your business and save lives

As a business owner you’re responsible for establishing clear policies and procedures for the use of cell phones and other hands-free devices.

To protect your employees and your business:

  1. Implement a formal and comprehensive distracted driving policy.
  2. Ban the use of cell phones while driving.
  3. Educate your employees on the policy, monitor compliance and address violations.
  4. Consider technology solutions. such as phone apps, that prevent incoming and outgoing calls while driving as well as preventing texting or use of other entertainment apps.
