Preventing work-related traffic accidents

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, employers lose $60 billion each year because of traffic accidents. In San Bernardino, and cities across California, these crashes result in a variety of costs for employers, including legal fees, damage to property, missed workplace productivity and medical expenses. Moreover, these wrecks lead to increased workers' comp costs, which underlines the importance of prevention.
