Tips to Reduce Work-Related Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents cause the largest proportion of serious and fatal workers' compensation claims. Consider implementing the following to reduce your risk:
 
  • Set up a safe driver program: Instruct your employees in basic driving practices and then reward them for safety conscious behavior.
  • Ongoing safety training: Perform regular training sessions on safety issues including proper use of seatbelts, avoiding distracted driving, and driving within the speed limit.
  • Driver screening: Review driving records and hire individuals with a clean and safe driving record.
  • Vehicle Maintenance: Perform regular maintenance and safety inspections of all vehicles. Consider technological updates to help drivers be safer and accountable for their driving behavior.
