Don't HR Alone #44 - Employee Safe Driving, and Form 5500 question


Safe driving kit from the National Safety Council aims to drive down crashes — PRACTICE TIP

The National Safety Council released a first-of-its-kind Safe Driving Kit to help employers eliminate the number one cause of workplace deaths—car crashes. The Safe Driving Kit, sponsored by Wheels, Inc., is a free online tool built to create safer roads and protect employees through multi-media resources and engaging materials. The kit addresses the key contributors to car crashes, including distraction, alcohol, other drugs, fatigue and seatbelt use. It also brings attention to lifesaving technology that helps prevent crashes during a time when motor vehicle deaths spike in part due to summer travel.

Car crashes cost employers upwards of $68 billion in comprehensive costs every year. Workplace policies and employer engagement can help reduce crashes and promote health and wellness on and off the job. The Safe Driving Kit includes resources such as:

  • Videos;

  • Fact Sheets and FAQs;

  • Myth Busters;

  • Infographics;

  • Posters;

  • Survivor Advocate Stories;
