Employees Driving Dangerously Can Impact Your Bottom Line
If you don’t think communicating safe driving practices to your employees is worth your time, think again. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA):
- Motor vehicle crashes costs employers $60 billion annually in medical care, legal expenses, property damage and lost productivity.
- The average crash costs an employer $16,500.
- When a worker’s on-the-job crash results in an injury, the cost to an employer is $74,000.
- If a fatality is involved, the costs can be $500,000 or more.
Driving accidents can happen without warning, so it’s crucial to understand the importance of safe driving. United Heartland’s “Road to Safety” driving campaign is targeted at employers and their employees who undertake incidental driving as part of their everyday operations.
