CIS is pleased to provide Driven to Distraction, a driver training program that focuses on overcoming the distractions that face drivers today to ensure that employee drivers arrive safely at their destinations. Dunny Sorensen, CIS Senior Risk Management Consultant, will be the instructor for this 2.5 hour workshop.
This program respects the fact you have basic driving skills and ability. Its curriculum helps drivers to consider what can be done to become an even better, safer driver, and to recognize and deal with constant distractions while driving.
Motor vehicle collisions are the number one cause of work-related fatalities. Avoiding collisions also avoids the emotional, physical, and financial effects that crashes have on the driver, passengers, and those in their home and work lives.
IN THIS PROGRAM YOU WILL LEARN, SEE AND DISCUSS:
- General statistics that demonstrate the extent, costs, and causes of motor vehicle crashes and the significance to your organization.
- How a vehicle and equipment contributes to crashes or adds to the injuries in a crash.
- The driver’s control over conditions, which include; drowsiness, aggression, stress, speeding, using a cellular phone, stopping distances, impacts of speed, eating while driving, and other distractions.
Course participants will also discuss tips to safer backing, defensive driving, understanding weather and road conditions that affect driving safely and how a driver can compensate for external conditions and environmental hazards while driving. The effect the organization’s culture, leadership, policies and supervision can have on vehicle crashes. What supervisors do to contribute to crashes and how changes in your organization will improve driving safety, driver selection, supervision, and driver training will be discussed.
Course materials and discussions also review the importance of vehicle inspections and maintenance, safety belts and airbags, antilock brake systems, and implementing a safe driver vehicle policy.
This training is free for CIS Workers’ Compensation, General Liability and/or Auto Liability members.
