Employer Traffic Safety Program

Welcome to Our Driving Concern: Employer Traffic Safety Program, a program of the National Safety Council. Our purpose is to educate employers on the impact crashes will have on their businesses and ways to help prevent crashes from happening. Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 cause of unintentional workplace deaths in the United States, and most of these crashes are preventable.

Our Driving Concern focuses on four areas where measures can be taken to prevent crashes—distracted driving, impaired driving, aggressive driving and passenger restraint.

A workplace motor vehicle crash costs an employer more than $24,000. If the employee is injured, the cost increases to more than $125,000.

Off-the-job crashes are especially costly, accounting for 80 percent of employer crash-related health fringe benefit costs and 92 percent of employer crash-related health care costs.

What You Can Do
More than 34,000 people have been killed on our nation’s roadways. Share these resources with those closest to you and hopefully you won't become another statistic.
