Protect Driving Workers with a Road Safety Program

April is National Distracted Driving Month in the US. And May 15-21 is National Road Safety Week in Canada. So now is a good time to think about the hazards that your workers face when they’re on the road.

If your workers drive as part of their jobs, it’s critical that you have road safety policies and practices in place to ensure their safety while on the road.
