Wednesday, Oct. 6 (10-10:45 a.m. CT): Rollover Prevention. Safety leaders and managers play a key role in helping drivers keep the load on the road. In this session, retired Texas Department of Public Safety senior trooper John Counts will discuss how rollovers happen, why they happen and what you can do to avoid them. Rollovers can be prevented. It’s important to understand the reasons they occur and dispel any myths.
Thursday, Oct. 21 (9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. CT): Drug Impairment Training for Texas Employers. This training explores the effects of alcohol and other drugs on driving and workplace performance as well as highlights the cost and lifestyle impacts of a DWI-alcohol arrest. Benefits of preventative training for employers and employees also are outlined.
Training consists of three 45-minute sessions, each followed by a 15-minute break, and then one 30-minute session. Upon completion of all four sessions, participants will receive a certificate via email and will be sent a copy of the curriculum.
Wednesday, Nov. 10 (9-10:30 a.m. CT): ODC Fast Pass Training. This is a brand new approach to the Our Driving Concern Employer Transportation Safety Training. Fast Pass 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 of you who have attended the ODC Employer Transportation Safety Training and need a refresh, or are simply looking for a quick look at resources and tools that can improve your safety plan, this session is for you!
This training is for HR professionals, safety professionals/instructors, risk managers, supervisors and department leaders – in short, anyone at your company who has a role in safety and education of employees. This training covers a variety of traffic safety topics and information employers need to understand, including the “why” behind why traffic safety should be a part of a strong health and wellness program for all employees, not just those who drive professionally.
Attendees will receive the same files and/or curriculum kits as those attending the traditional four-hour classroom training.
Wednesday, Nov. 17 (10-10:30 a.m.): Backing Up Safely – What Every Driver Should Know. Backing collisions account for about 25% of all collisions. But, considering that 99% of the time drivers are behind the wheel, they are moving forward, more awareness is needed on backing up. Every backing situation is different and the use of safe backing vehicle tips by employers and employees can help prevent crashes.
In this webinar, Senior Program Manager Cindy Leonard will offer ideas to help drivers identify blind spots and back up safely. Mitigate these avoidable incidents and engage all your employees with up-front, easy-to-use tools.
Thursday, Dec. 9 (10-10:30 a.m. CT): Impaired Driving, Emerging Trends and the Occupational Arena. The occupational arena and impaired driving meet up in ways we wish they wouldn’t. Investigator Michael Jennings of the Williamson County Attorney’s Office will share emerging trends and provide details that help all of us improve safety on our roadways, in the workplace and anyplace.
