Distracted Driving Prevention Resources

March 21, 2017

Distracted driving in the construction industry is a growing concern, especially for construction employers. Traffic fatalities increased by 6% in 2016, and 27% of crashes involve drivers talking and/or texting on cell phones. The risk of crashing  when engaged in visual-manual sub-tasks is three times that of non-distracted drivers. Fortunately, MCAA and it’s long-time partner in safety CNA have produced resources that will help you address the concern in your own companies. These resources include a recently revised CNA bulletin on Limiting Driver Distractions, MCAA’s Distracted Driving Reduction and Prevention Guide, MCAA’s Safety Bulletin on Distracted Driving, and MCAA’s worker safety training video on Workplace Distractions.
