Core Elements of a Safety and Health Program
April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month
April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, sponsored by the National Safety Council, with a theme of Just Drive. On a typical day, more than 700 people are injured in distracted driving crashes. Talking on a cell phone – even hands-free – or texting or programming an in-vehicle infotainment system diverts your attention away from driving. Keep yourself and others around you safe and #justdrive.
Join NSC during Distracted Driving Awareness Month to help make our roadways and our people safer. Whether you’re driving a forklift, semi-truck or just headed home after work, attentive driving is more important than ever. Create a distracted driving program and engage your workforce in this important safe driving initiative. Commit to driving distraction-free by taking the NSC Just Drive Pledge.
This course is designed for those interested in teaching OSHA's 10-hour and 30-hour construction safety and health outreach classes to employees and other interested groups. Learn effective instructional approaches, adult learning principles and training techniques.
