Press Release (ePRNews.com) - San Jose, California - Feb 17, 2016 - Coggno, a Silicon Valley online training marketplace and learning management system, partners up with Agentis Safety Development to deliver Distracted Driving Prevention Course.
Distracted driving is one of the main causes of traffic accidents, and according to National Safety Council (NSC), traffic accidents are the number one cause of work-related death and injury in America. Park Your Phone, Drive Your Car – Distracted Driving Prevention Course is designed to address the risks of Driving While Distracted, and to give employees some prevention mechanisms in an effort to stop texting and driving.
“Aside from the human costs, the workers’ compensation, property damage, and general liability issues around safe vehicle practices, are critical to organizations large and small in every state in the country.”
As the legal doctrine “Respondeat Superior” states, an employer is responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their employment. An average cost of a crash without an injury, to employer is about $16,500. When the on-the-job crash results in an injury, the cost to employer raises to $74,000; and when fatalities are involved, costs can exceed $500,000. By implementing some prevention mechanisms for distracted driving, employers can greatly reduce the risks faced by their employees, while protecting their company’s bottom line.
“The training Coggno provides can often appear to have a remote impact on the daily lives of our audience, so we are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver curriculum like this Driver Training Course, that is such a significant part of people’s lives, and make a positive impact,” said Coggno CEO, Tod Browndorf. “Aside from the human costs, the workers’ compensation, property damage, and general liability issues around safe vehicle practices, are critical to organizations large and small in every state in the country.”
This distracted driving awareness program defines distracted driving and multitasking, helps the course-taker understand the risks of distracted driving and offers prevention techniques to help them drive distracted-free.
