Be Aware of Distracted Driving and Keep Employees Safe

Driver Distraction: Food, makeup, cell phones. Anything that diverts a driver’s attention from the primary task at hand, that of focusing on the road, is distracting. Leave the grooming and other stuff for home! Just drive.

Deal the cards and play a game of traffic safety to engage employees. Is it safe to use a hands-free device while driving:

A. Yes, it’s safe.

B. No, it’s deadly.

To find out if you were right, visit our website: How to Use the Safety Coach Cards.

The cards can be used as a traffic safety teaching tool outside of a traditional classroom setting. Cards feature discussion prompters and questions with suggested answers. Each card is labeled with a topic. Use all the cards of one topic to form a complete safety lesson, or mix them up for a Jeopardy-style quiz game. Engage your employees, save money and save lives.
