Distracted driving is any activity that diverts a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving. All these distractions endanger the lives of drivers, passengers, and bystanders. Distractions include; texting, using a cell phone, eating and drinking, talking to passengers, grooming, reading (including maps), using a navigation system, watching a video, and adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player (distraction.gov). The most effective way to end distracted driving is to educate and raise awareness of the dangers it poses. There are many resources available to use as a part of a distracted driving awareness campaign for your employees.
The Department of Transportation (DOT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) work to reduce the threats of distracted driving and raise awareness of distracted driving hazards. Both provide resources on their extension websites for distracted driving; Distraction.gov and stoptextsstopwrecks.org. These sites provide statistics, distracted driving news, fact sheets, tips, white papers, research findings, as well as downloadable posters, logos, Facebook and Twitter avatars, posters, infographics, and videos to assist in building awareness amongst your workforce.
Using Mastery’s distracted driving courses along with the distracted driving websites can be key components in making the workplace and community safer. Even with the discount pricing on these courses, the ability to spread the knowledge and techniques to being a safer driver and saving lives, is priceless.
