Drowsy driving is a quiet issue that many safety managers cannot track. A comprehensive 2018 study done by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found that the number of crashes caused by drowsy driving were eight times higher than federal estimates. Meanwhile, distracted driving is the cause of 12% of all collisions involving class 5-8 vehicles that were reviewed by Omnitracs.
There are 4 main actions you can do to eliminate drowsy and distracted driving.
During this webinar, Don Osterberg, former Senior Vice President of Safety, Security and Driving Training for Schneider, will share how you can eliminate drowsy and distracted driving in your fleet. He will be joined by Jeff Griswold, Director of Product Management for Omnitracs, to share how technology can empower drivers with in-cab insights, and managers can track the success of the program.
During this webinar, you’ll learn how:
Leadership can help prevent drowsy and distracted driving
Personal touches can radically affect positive change
Technology can aid in your efforts to reduce drowsy and distracted driving
