NSC launches free Cell Phone Policy Assessment Tool
The National Safety Council has released a free Cell Phone Policy Assessment Tool to help employers keep workers safe from motor vehicle crashes, which are the leading cause of workplace death. The tool provides employers with instant feedback on their company’s policy on cell phone use while driving. Employers complete a short survey, and a report is generated showing how the policy matches up with best practices. Feedback is given on crash and liability risks, and tips on how to strengthen the employer’s current policy are shared. The tool also provides case studies and educational pieces to share with employees.
