Seriously No Yawns Here. Most Engaging Safety Talks Ever.

Find Out More

The roads are starting to look icy and covered in snow. It doesn’t look terrible... so you don’t close the office for the day. We get it. Even delaying your first shift of workers will put a huge dent in profits. So unless it is extreme weather you can’t tell your employees to stay home.

 

A day of missed work costs a construction company on average $400 and that is not including the impact on the rest of the crew (source). The delays alone could upset a client and cost you a project. The same could be said for almost any industry. The average costs may change but the problem is all the same. Missed work days cost a company lots of money.

 

The scary truth is a driving accident on average costs your company $15,000 (source). Between equipment costs, employee injury, and loss of production an accident can seriously cost your company. Today we are here to eliminate — well at least alleviate — your fears and doubts about seasonal driving with these seasonal driving safety tips.

 

During the fall and winter season driving safety becomes top of mind but really the tips are all the same. It comes down to having the right training, eliminating distractions, and training more than just your drivers. 

 

1. Implement Microburst Safety Training

It can be difficult for many to focus on safety training first thing in the morning, in a classroom setting — even with a few donuts and a coffee. Add in the fact that they are going to have to recall what they learned from the training while driving or even in an emergency situation. With micro learner your employees are able to get short bits of information more frequently. This allows for a longer retention time and an improved attitude towards safety training.

 

2. Eliminate Distractions

It is easy for any work vehicle to get cluttered up quickly. These items floating around the vehicle can cause serious distractions. Make sure to give your employees time at the end of every work day to eliminate the distractions they created from the day — lunch bags, trash, etc. It takes just one loose item to get stuck under your breaks and cause an accident.

 

3. Train Your Passengers

Do you have employees who are not trained to drive so they are more dedicated riders? They need training too. As a rider you can easily find yourself talking, showing the driver pictures, playing distracting music and before you know it the driver is completely distracted. With some simple passenger safety training and tips everyone in the car can be responsible for their safety.

 

Are you still on the hunt for driving safety training? Worried about winter safety? You are in luck because we have online training your employees will love. You can chat with someone today about requesting the training here.

"Ving Understands What Safety Managers Need to Improve Training"

One of the biggest problems I've had with safety training platforms is making the training easily accessible on mobile job sites, making it easy to upload in-house training, and technical issues with outdated software. All of those problems have been solved by Ving. It's well-thought-out and easy-to-use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the QR code option. For example, you can print a QR code sticker that explains how to inspect fire extinguishers and post it next to the extinguisher so anyone doing monthly inspections isn't guessing based on training that was six months ago. They can review the training immediately.
