NSC updates cell phone ban resources

NSC recently released its new white paper, Employer Liability and the Case for Comprehensive Cell Phone Policies (.pdf file). The report explains how employers can be held liable when employees are involved in crashes where cell phone use is a factor.

To help companies implement a comprehensive cell phone policy, NSC updated its Cell Phone Policy Kit. The kit now includes a roll-out calendar, activity guide, posters, tip sheets and materials explaining cognitive distraction. You may download the kit or request a CD by emailing [email protected].

The NSC white paper, Understanding the Distracted Brain: Why driving while using hands-free cell phones is risky behavior (.pdf file), has been updated with current statistics.

Both white papers also are available in the NSC Cell Phone Policy Kit.
