Did you know that more workers are killed in motor vehicle accidents each year than any other cause. Statistics show that, distracted driving accidents killed more than 3,o00 people in 2012 & injured 416,000 in 2010.

To prevent distracted driving, OSHA recommends that companies prohibit texting while driving, declaring vehicles “text-free zones.” OSHA also recommends that “companies set clear procedures, times and places for drivers’s safe use of texting and other technologies for communicating with managers, customers and others.”
