Your employees face tons of risk when they’re out on the job. The biggest risk of all? The drivers they’re sharing the roadways with. Whether your employees are working along the roadway, driving, or stopped at a traffic light, their biggest risk is the deadly mistakes amateur drivers make. Every accident is preventable. That’s why it pains us to see stories like this one. We see them almost every day. We don’t have all the details to this accident, but what we do know is when you train and educate your employees on the mistakes other drivers make, your employees become safer.
