Workplace Vehicle Safety

 

Unlike other workplaces, the roadway is not a closed environment. Preventing work-related roadway crashes requires strategies that combine traffic safety principles and sound safety management practices. Although employers cannot control roadway conditions, they can promote safe driving behavior by providing safety information to workers and by setting and enforcing driver safety policies. Crashes are not an unavoidable part of doing business. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has identified steps employers can take steps to protect their employees and their companies.
