Given the enormous expense associated with crashes and injuries, it is necessary to train your employees to drive safely and develop a companywide traffic safety program.

About half of all crash-related injuries result in days away from work, which can greatly impact employer costs, including:

  • Health, life and disability insurance premiums
  • Sick leave
  • Contributions to workers’ compensation medical and disability insurance
  • Liability insurance
  • Crash-related legal expenses
  • Lost productivity
  • Recruiting and training to replace an injured employee

Our Driving Concern offers a free training program to teach your employees the basics of traffic safety and help prevent costly crashes. Our Driving Concern Train-the-Trainer Workshops teach presentation skills in conjunction with a traffic safety curriculum to address driver behaviors that are costly to Texas employers. This training is great for HR professionals, safety professionals, supervisors, instructors, and other staff.

If you want to arrange a training for your company or would like to see about having a training in your community, please contact Lisa Robinson, at or 512-466-7383.
