Fatality Notice: IHSA has learned of two separate fatalities this week: One involved a millwright and the other a utility employee. One workplace fatality in any year is one too many, regardless of the sector, industry, or occupation. Please pause all work for a safety moment and re-establish a commitment to the prevention of injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.

Program Description

One of the leading causes of motor vehicle collisions, injuries, and deaths in Ontario is a distracted driver. This half-day classroom-based course will answer the following questions:

  • What is a distraction?
  • What are the different types of distractions?
  • How does a driver become distracted?
  • How can a driver minimize or eliminate distractions?
 

This program includes a pre-test to assess your prior knowledge of distracted driving and a post-test to measure what you have learned from the course. It provides you with an opportunity to make an impact on safety at your workplace through making a personal pledge for driver improvement and by reviewing your current workplace safe driving policy and recommending changes.
