OSHA's Position On Driving Safety Training
According to United States Census Bureau, in 2009 there were 10.8 million motor vehicle accidents reported. Within that statistic, 39.9 thousand individuals were killed and over 2.3 million adult drivers and passengers were treated in emergency facilities. In 2005, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the lifetime costs for vehicle accident-related deaths and injuries totalled about $70 billion. The Department of Transportation (DOT), in conjunction with OSHA, has specific mandates for drivers when it comes to vehicle training requirements. But, making sure that your employees reach their intended destinations will be directly tied to how well they are able to safely navigate the road. This is true whether a driver is transporting passengers, delivering commodities or engaging in authorized business travel. In cases such as these, the most important aspects of driver safety can reviewed through training that uses the right resource materials. This is why we offer a selection of driver safety training programs. These programs include:
- Avoiding distractions that can interfere with driving
- Driving in adverse weather
- Defensive driving for large passenger vans and motorcoaches
- Vehicle inspection
- The importance of safety features such as seatbelts.
There are many situations in which operating a vehicle is part of the job. While training those who are tasked with operating an 18-wheeler, as an example, is an obvious expectation, attention should be also be given to other types of driving as well. Consider employees who are required to drive to different business locations or places where they may not be familiar with the terrain, driving conditions or address locations. For example, being distracted, while looking for an address, can result in an accident.
