According a study released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in May 2014, U.S. motor vehicle crashes in 2010 cost almost $1 trillion in loss of productivity and loss of life. Causes include:

  • Alcohol-Related Crashes
  • Speeding
  • Running Red Lights
  • Fatigue
  • Distracted Driving
  • Cell Phone Use

It is important that you have involvement from both management and employees and that you have written policies in place. Policies will help management and employees know the proper steps to follow and proper disciplinary actions to take in case a policy is broken.
