To prevent motor vehicle injuries while working:
- Employers should provide mandatory comprehensive employee driver safety training programs including recognition of symptoms of driver distraction/inattention and driver fatigue.
- Employees should avoid distractions and wear seat belts at all times.
- Don’t place yourself in a potentially hazardous situation. Drivers should always stay alert and practice defensive driving techniques.
