A message from OSHA:

“In April, the National Safety Council conducted a free webinar, ‘Driving Distraction-Free and Defensively’ as part of its annual campaign for Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of worker fatalities year after year, and distractions such as using a cell phone while driving dramatically increases the risk of such crashes. NSC’s webinar offers recommendations not only on eliminating distractions in your own vehicle, but also on how to be alert and react to the actions of other distracted drivers on the road with you. The webinar is available online as a video and a PDF that you can download.”
