Comment pouvez-vous rendre les routes plus sûres?
La sécurité est la responsabilité de tous; et cela n'est nulle part aussi vrai qu'en route. Même avec les meilleures conditions de conduite, y compris les routes sèches, une grande visibilité et des journées plus longues, la conduite pendant les vacances accroît les risques.
However, there’s good news. While the American population has been growing since 1975, the actual number of driver fatalities has declined. To help support this encouraging trend during National Safety Month, the National Safety Council and its partners are reminding drivers about the importance of sharing the roads safely.
Rester en sécurité pendant la conduite dans le cadre du travail
Did you know that approximately 86% of American workers commute to work by car?  In addition, there are millions of people who drive or ride in a motor vehicle as part of their profession. So it may come as no surprise that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of work-related deaths in America. In response, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has created a website specifically designed to provide guidance on how truck drivers, high-risk workers and every individual who drives for work can stay safe.
Les yeux sur la route, les mains sur le volant
Whether texting, using in-vehicle technology or simply reaching for a drink, taking your hand off the wheel distracts you from your primary task of driving safely. Since staying alert while driving is one of your best defenses against accidents, NIOSH is encouraging companies and their workers to have a serious dialogue about distracted driving. They’ve created these resources for educating workers about distracted driving at work. Among other things, NIOSH’s guide outlines:
- Les principaux types de distractions
- Le rôle des distractions dans les accidents de la circulation
- L'importance de la prévention de la distraction au volant au travail
- Comment vous pouvez aider à prévenir la distraction au volant au travail
