Our friends at Zoomsafer have created a couple of very interesting videos that highlight the potential legal risks for employers who do not create AND enforce Distracted Driving policies for their workforce.
The videos feature legal experts discussing the ways in which companies may be exposing themselves to legal action as a result of poor enforcement of Distracted Driving policies. They demonstrate that it is not sufficient for companies to create a policy – they have to ensure that the policy is actively applied across the workforce.
The first of these videos is embedded below.
