Whether from using a company vehicle or your employee driving their own vehicle, there is a potential for motor vehicle accidents whenever wheels are turning. Driving while distracted, tired, operating at unsafe speeds, and following too closely are just some of the behaviors that put you at risk for accidents. Know who is driving on behalf of your company, and practice safe driving habits.
A workplace motor vehicle crash costs an employer more than $24,000. If the employee is injured, the cost increases to more than $125,000.
