An Employee Benefit ProgramMay 7, 2010 | in The Daily Drive
So the count today – one accident, it appears the car which had its rear bumper attached to the front bumper of a truck had stopped at a yellow light while the truck had not. The female owner of the car was not moving it, had her hands on her hips and the driver of the truck was on the phone, probably with his insurance company. Needless to say, it was not a good day for either of them. The instant meetings of total strangers, difficult way to get introduced to people! But I digress, the question is whether or not the driver of the truck ever got off the phone or was he distracted driving which caused the accident in the first place. He now owns part of a Honda Accord!
With today’s economy being what it is and with the implementation of Health Care Reform, companies should be seeking ways to drive down their operating costs while improving their efficiency. A unique employee benefit program is offering a company sponsored driver safety program. Every employee drives, regardless of whether they drive a company vehicle or not, they all drive to and from work. My commute is fraught with opportunity for using skills I have learned with our safety driving video and our on line driver safety program provides valuable refresher skills for those of us who have not taken a drivers education test in 10 plus years.
A comprehensive workplace policy should include a driver program focused on and targeting improved driver safety. DefensiveDriving.com is a market leader and we have developed corporate driver training and fleet driver training which is focused on educating the employee. In addition, successful completion of the on line driver safety program can qualify the individual employee for discounts on their personal auto insurance. The company knows it has done the minimum necessary to prevent accidents and the employee gets a discount on their personal insurance, all from participating in an employee driving program designed to improve driver behavior.
