We're constantly surrounded by electronic hums, beeps, tweets, and vibrations. The temptation to be constantly plugged into our cell phones, MP3 players, and laptops can be overwhelming, even when we're driving.

 

Studies have found that drivers who text at the wheel are 23 times more likely to be involved in an accident. When your employees are driving company vehicles, this can be a big problem for your business. Here are a few tips to keep your drivers focused on the road—and not on their phones:

 

ñ  Set clear policies: Your city or state may already have laws making it illegal to text while driving. If not, make sure that you have a strong business policy in place.

ñ  Training: Remember taking driver's ed? For many of us, it was a lifetime ago. Take the time to remind your drivers about basic safety techniques while driving, including the importance of keeping focus on the road.

ñ  Be consistent: If you don't want your drivers texting or talking on the phone while they're on the road, don't expect them to always answer phone calls or texts immediately. Your employees look to you to know how to act. If you demand they always pick up the phone right away or check every new text or email on their phones, they're going to do it while driving.

 

By setting clear rules and expectations, you can keep your employees and your vehicles safe and out of harm's way on the road.
