Give your employees the Defensive Driving Course (DDC) and help them join the ranks of the most safety-conscious drivers on the road.

For employees who drive either a company vehicle or their own vehicle on the job, safe driving is a matter of occupational safety. However, an estimated nine out of 10 time-loss injuries happen off the job, not counting employees who take time off to care for an injured family member. When a company driver is involved in a crash, insurance rates can skyrocket.
In addition, indirect costs (whether the worker was driving on or off the job) can include recuperation time, re-staffing, retraining and lost productivity.

Fewer collisions to company vehicles will help control insurance costs – and safe drivers less loss time from work because they avoid collisions. That is why a defensive driving course can benefit all employees (and family members) who have a driver’s license. DDC is designed to teach your employees and their families how to drive safely.
