Distracted Driving: Rewind
Distracted Driving: Rewind is part of the award-winning DuPont portfolio of workplace safety training offerings. Other offerings include the Workplace Safety Series, Managing Safety: Systems That Work For Operations Managers, Managing Safety: Techniques That Work For Line Supervisors, and the DuPont™ STOP® program.
About the Workshop
Statistics show that distracted driving is the reason behind many driving-related accidents and fatalities. If an employee causes an accident while on the job, there is the potential for injuries, loss of life, litigation, and claims, as well as indirect costs such as loss of productivity and damage to a company’s public image.
Distracted Driving: Rewind is designed to help participants make better decisions behind the wheel. The major focus is to change participants’ way of thinking about multitasking while driving. By pausing a moment to think about safety before, during, and after driving, the chances of causing and being in an accident that may have devastating consequences can be decreased.
This half-day* workshop discusses statistics, real-life cases, and the importance of a corporate driving policy. It also covers personal actions that drivers engage in that make roadways dangerous.
