Many occupations in the United States require at least some on-the-job driving. Accidents related to driving are the largest contributor to work related deaths. This course introduces safe practices and procedures to protect employees from risks associated with transportation. While the principles and concepts in this course are non technical, they can be used to protect employees and the public from at least some injuries and fatalities that could be avoided. Developing a safe driving program and consistently encouraging employees to use those methods has shown to be a successful way of reducing job related transportation accidents.
Both young and old employees should be reminded of the risks associated with driving. The roads are ever-changing environments, so a single set of regulations could never cover every situation. This course provides the most important recommendations and how to apply them to the situation at hand. It also displays the proper procedures for accident reporting if one does occur.
This guide is intended to be consistent with all existing OSHA standards therefore, if an area of this course is considered by the reader to be inconsistent with a standard, then the OSHA standard should be followed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
