Workers who drive vehicles on the job keep industry moving and help provide many modern conveniences — from public transportation to food delivery. Yet without proper training and precautions, driving can involve serious physical and financial hazards for individuals and their employers.  In 2017, transportation incidents were responsible for 40% of fatal occupational injuries in the United States.  The cost of a single accident could easily exceed $1.4 million. A defensive driver safety program can reduce risk and keep people safer on the road.

Hazmat School’s Defensive Driving Course is an online safety course that offers extended driving training. It focuses on critical driver safety issues and the methods taken to control hazards that are the cause of most accidents.  We will provide you with an understanding of what it means to drive safely.

Who Should Take This Course?

Our defensive driver training course is designed to benefit anyone who drives professionally. This includes truck drivers, delivery drivers and employees who drive on company business. Since many people drive while commuting to work, this course can also prove useful for those who drive only on personal time. Accidents that occur outside of work hours can affect an employee’s well-being and their ability to perform, so defensive driver training can be for everyone.

You may also consider taking this course if you manage a fleet of vehicles or supervise workers who drive professionally. You can only help protect your workers when you understand the risks they face on the road.

What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?

Although the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not specifically require employers to provide defensive driver training to their employees, this course may help businesses meet obligations to their workers.

Under Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, also known as the General Duty clause, employers must provide working conditions free from serious recognized hazards, including hazards associated with driving. Workers have the right to receive training and information about workplace hazards and how to prevent them. Our defensive driver training course offers one convenient way to minimize risk, communicate hazards and maintain compliance with the General Duty clause.
