Research shows that use of mobile device while driving is risky business for both employees and employers. Just consider these facts:
- 50% of fleet drivers admit to texting, emailing or browsing while driving.
- These employees are 23X more likely to crash.
- Costing employers and insurers $11 billion annually.
- 8% of fleet operators have been sued by third party plaintiff’s
So what do you think? Is distracted driving a concern to your fleet operation? How does your company view the risks of employee use of mobile devices while driving?
In conjunction with our friends at Aegis Mobility, Geotab invites you to share your opinions by participating in the 3rd Annual Survey on Work Place Distracted Driving. The survey itself is strictly confidential and takes less than 3-minutes to complete. The purpose is to gather feedback from commercial fleet operators and professional risk managers to gauge attitudes toward employee use of mobile devices while driving on the job.
Responses will be consolidated, analyzed and published on April 16, 2013 so everyone can see for themselves how employers view the issue of employee distracted driving.
