April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Denise GillinNews, Risk Management

The National Safety Council (NSC) is America’s leading nonprofit safety advocate, focused on eliminating the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths. One of their initiatives is designating April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

It’s easy to participate:

Commit to driving distraction-free by taking the NSC Just Drive Pledge: More than 700 people are injured in distracted driving crashes each day. Encourage all employees and their family members to take the NSC pledge to drive distraction-free. Take the Pledge.

Use the 5-minute Safety Talk and presentation: Kick off a meeting with a safety talk and / or PowerPoint presentation to help educate co-workers about the risks of inattention blindness. Grab a blindfold to really drive this point home.

Display awareness posters: Use common areas or share them digitally to raise awareness of distracted driving risks. Focus on Your Drive and It Was Just

More information and resources are available on the NSC website. You can also contact a member of the Murray Risk Control Team at 717.397.9600 for more prevention tips regarding distracted driving.
