Upcoming Live Sessions
Thursday, Oct. 5: Our Driving Concern Fast Pass Training. Register to attend now.
Fast Pass Training is designed to trim down some of the content focus on behavioral topics and offer more direction for leadership on implementation of a traffic safety culture. For those who have attended ODC Employer Transportation Safety Training in the past but would like a refresh, or are in need of a reminder on how to find free resources that can enhance your safety initiatives, this session is for you!
This training is for HR professionals, safety professionals/instructors, risk managers, supervisors and department leaders – anyone at your company who plays a role in safety and/or educating other employees. Traffic safety is for all of employees, not just those who drive professionally, and you’ll learn why it should be a key part of your health and wellness program.
Participants will receive a training fulfillment certificate via email.
Tuesday, Oct. 17: Pedestrian Safety is a Shared Responsibility. Register to attend now.
Almost every trip starts and ends with walking – making most of us pedestrians at some point during the day. We are most vulnerable walking in urban areas, crossing busy streets and negotiating traffic. Pedestrian injuries and fatalities in motor vehicle crashes affect employees, their families and your organization.
Transportation-related incidents are the leading cause of occupational fatalities. How do pedestrians fit into the traffic safety picture at your workplace? The Governors Highway Safety Association estimates 7,508 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes in 2022, continuing the upward trend in recent years. Was one of them a coworker? Employers bear the brunt of crash costs, whether they occur on or off the job.
In this session, National Safety Council Program Manager April Ramos will discuss the top factors contributing to traffic crashes involving pedestrians, including driver inattention and speed. Countermeasures that organizations can incorporate into their safety cultures also will be a focus.

ODC Training Program Descriptions
DITTE (Drug Impairment Training for Texas Employers)
Can you identify an impaired employee in the workplace? We offer a staff-development training course to aid your safety leaders in doing just that.
Free Drug Impairment Training for Texas Employers (DITTE) explores the effects of alcohol and other drugs on driving and workplace performance and highlights costs and lifestyle impacts of a DWI-alcohol arrest. Benefits of preventive training for employers and employees also are outlined.
In each section of DITTE training, participants are directed to free resources designed to raise awareness of risks associated with impairment and promote safe behaviors. The training addresses seven categories of impairment:
- Central nervous system depressants
- Central nervous system stimulants
- Dissociative anesthetics
- Narcotic analgesics
Who should attend? Health, safety managers/leads, wellness, human resource, public affairs professionals, business owners, as well as senior and executive management team members.
What will you learn?
- How to educate employees on traffic safety to help reduce the number of alcohol and drug-related incidents on Texas roads.
- How to develop or improve a resource guide for drug policies, programs and practices within your organization.
COST: This education is grant-funded by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). There is NO CHARGE to participants.
