How Employee Auto Accidents Can Jeopardize Your Company


From truckers and EMTs to real estate agents and salespeople, company drivers are everywhere. As distracted driving increases, it is critical to keep these employees safe on the road.

Why does work-related vehicle safety matter?

  • Millions of workers use company vehicles.
  • Crashes are the leading cause of work-related deaths in the United States.

In addition to safety concerns, accidents by drivers on “work time,” are a big cost to employers. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle crashes at work cost U.S. employers $25 billion annually. That’s an average of $65,000 per nonfatal injury and nearly $671,000 per accident-related death.
