What's The Problem
Our Driving Concern focuses on four areas where measures can be taken to prevent crashes—distracted driving, impaired driving, aggressive driving and passenger restraint. Simple and easy steps can be taken by employers to make sure these areas of concern do not lead to unnecessary costs to their businesses.
According to NHTSA's reports on the "Economic Burden of Traffic Crashes on Employers DOT HS 809 682" employers in Texas alone spend $3.5 billion every year as a result of on-the-job and off-the-job traffic injuries.
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.
Employer liability is a growing concern and source of financial as well as legal risk for Texas employers. Click here to see what you can do regarding instituting company policies and ensuring your employees adhere to laws and regulations.
