Of the approximately three billion texts sent and received every day, many are to and from individuals at work. While you would not read a book while operating heavy machinery, you likely have called or texted someone during working hours. In some cases, however, that distraction can lead to serious injury or even death. This training video provides you with examples of these hazards, as well as information on how to avoid them.

This course presents several examples of actual scenarios that may occur in the workplace. In addition to these examples, the course discusses policies regarding both cell phone restrictions as well as approved cell phone use; not every time you use your phone at work will cause a safety risk. As a result, you need to be able to also recognize and respond to unsafe cell phone use, which is covered here as well. Safety and vigilance is key, as even a moment’s distraction can lead to someone’s death, whether it is your coworker’s or even your own.

Cell phones are commonplace, and they are likely with us all throughout the day. However, there are times when this seemingly innocent device can cause a disaster. Employees must fully appreciate the risks they face if distracted by a phone while at work. Utilize the information presented here and help maintain a safer work environment through eliminating this dangerous distraction.
