Wednesday, Oct. 30 (10-10:30 a.m.): A Culture of Safety — Why Transportation Safety is Important in the Workplace. Transportation incidents are the leading cause of occupational fatalities. The workplace is a natural setting for addressing traffic safety and discussing driver behavior. By establishing policies and providing education, companies can save lives as well as cut costs associated with traffic crashes on and off the job. Barry Bairrington, safety coordinator with The City of Waco, will discuss why transportation safety is important and how to engage management and employees. He also will share best-practice safety solutions.
Wednesday, Nov. 20 (2-2:30 p.m.): Impairment — The Cost to Employers. What happens to employees when they are not at work can have a dramatic impact on business operations and finances. Crash-related injuries can mean days away from work, which can greatly impact employer costs. Lisa Robinson, senior program manager with the National Safety Council, will discuss why an employer should be focused on the 4 D’s of impairment — drunk, drugged, distracted and drowsy driving. She also will talk about the impact of crashes and cover safety steps that will help employers save money and save lives.
Wednesday, Dec. 11 (10-10:30 a.m.): The Dangers of Drinking & Driving. In Texas, drivers are legally intoxicated when their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level reaches .08. However, driving ability can be impaired below the legal limit. What happens to your body when you drink and drive? How much is too much? Lisa Robinson, senior program manager with the National Safety Council, will discuss how BAC affects driving, why it is important to plan ahead for a safe ride home and answer all of your impaired driving questions. She also will outline who is most at risk and how employers can promote safe driving behaviors. What’s learned at work often is carried home.
Thursday, Feb. 6 (10-10:30 a.m.): The Best Offense is a Solid Defense. Does your company have a defensive driving strategy? Talking with your employees about risks associated with speeding and aggressive driving can assist them with handling unsafe driving situations. Lisa Robinson, senior program manager with the National Safety Council, will discuss what aggressive driving is and how employers can encourage their employees to adopt safe driving habits to avoid dangerous driving situations.
