ODC Program Added to the Texas Department of Insurance Conference in Austin

Planning to attend the 19th annual Texas Safety Summit May 19-21 in Austin? The ODC Train-the-Trainer is a pre-conference choice taking place May 19. To register, please visit the TDI event website.

During this session, participants will learn why traffic safety should be a part of every employer's safety culture. They'll learn about employer liability and employer costs associated with crashes, how to implement the Our Driving Concern: Texas Employer Traffic Safety Program and about tangible resources they can use to address driver behaviors on and off the job.

Our train-the-trainer workshop teaches 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.

These instructor-led behavior-specific modules are designed with an employer-employee focus. Employers can deliver the message to their employees at staff meetings, safety meetings, etc. Each module includes scripted PowerPoint, video and audio presentations, facilitator guide, tip sheets and handouts.

For more information or to set up training at your location, contact Lisa Robinson, program manager, at (512) 466-7383 or
