Sample Driving Policy
As an employer, you are wondering what elements should be included in a safe driving policy for employees. We have created a Sample Driving Policy you can copy and use on your own company letterhead.
The document addresses concern over aggressive driving, distracted driving, impaired driving and seat belt use. At the end, there is a place for employee acknowledgement of company policy, signature required.
The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety has partnered with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to create a free online seat belt toolkit. The kit includes a communication plan for a six-week worksite seat belt usage campaign.
Think you are good to drive a few hours after you have had some drinks? Check out this timeline to understand how your blood alcohol level (BAC) can remain elevated long after you have stopped drinking.
Each month, print and display copies of the Our Driving Concern traffic safety calendar and poster collection at your workplace.
Check To Protect
More than 50 million vehicles in the U.S. have unrepaired, open recalls. That is rougly one in five vehicles on the road and includes tens of millions of unrepaired, recalled Takata airbags. In a crash, recalled airbags can rupture and spray shrapnel into the vehicle, transforming lifesaving-safety equipment into life-threatening devices. Check To Protect is a national champaign led by the National Safety Council that encourages drivers and employers to check the recall status of their vehicles and have open recalls fixed immediately.

Drug and Alcohol Policy & Compliance Notice
The U.S. Department of Transportation issued a notice so employers and employees who work in safety-sensitive positions know: 1. The DOT requires testing for marijuana but not Cannabidiol (CBD), 2. Labeling of many CBD products may be misleading because the products could contain higher levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) than what the product label states, 3. The DOT’s Drug and Alcohol Testing Regulation does not authorize the use of Schedule I drugs, including marijuana, for any reason. Download and share the DOT Alcohol Policy and Compliance Notice.
