Consider these alarming statistics:

  • Employers can expect to pay $24,000 or more when an employee has a traffic accident involving injuries.
  • In just one year, U.S. companies spent some $9 billion for medical care resulting from auto crash injuries.
  • Employers spent another $9 billion on life insurance, disability payments, and sick leave for crash victims.
  • In total, U.S companies spent $230 billion last year on vehicle collisions.
  • In 2003, there were more than 11 million traffic accidents across the U.S., resulting in 2.9 million injuries and more than 40,000 deaths.

The high cost of unsafe driving practices is a significant concern for fleet operators. Employee driving safety courses can help to reduce the potential for injuries and lower the financial risk of on-the-job accidents. Driving safety courses can also decrease insurance premiums, Worker's Compensation rates, and administrative expenses.

The Driver Safety Course from Fleetwatch Systems & DDC USA Fleet covers defensive driving techniques, strategies for hazardous driving environments, and the effects of drugs and alcohol on driving safety. Drivers gain practical knowledge and skills that prepare them to respond effectively to unpredictable or dangerous situations.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) U.S. Department of Labour

In 1970, the U.S. Congress established the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). As defined in its enabling legislation, OSHA's mission is to "Assure so far as possible every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions."

This mandate involves the application of a set of tools by OSHA (e.g., standards development, enforcement, compliance assistance) which enable employers to maintain safe and healthful workplaces.

The FleetWatch Systems- Blueprints™ for Safety brand of programs provide more than just safety training. Each program focuses on safety as a process and provides a "blueprint" that can be followed step-by-step to develop, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive safety or ergonomic program that will provide best safety practices and comply with OSHA standards.

Both experts and those with limited knowledge about safety issues benefit from the simple, yet comprehensive approach of Blueprints for Safety.

Compliance with OSHA requires:

  • Written programs
  • Monitoring
  • Employee training
  • Recordkeeping

Although the Blueprints for Safety was originally designed for U.S. employers, the general principles and practices addressed in each program are also relevant to the Canadian workplace and safety standards.

Fleetwatch Systems Blueprints for Safety makes compliance a simple step-by-step process.
