drowsy driving

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of workplace deaths, and fatigue is a contributing factor. A recent survey conducted by the National Safety Council shows that 43 percent of Americans may be too tired to function safely at work and, of those, 31 percent commute 30 minutes or longer to work. This heightens their chances of falling asleep behind the wheel. Help raise awareness of this critical safety issue by downloading this Drowsy Driving poster to display at your workplace.
