End Distracted Driving: Why safe driving is good for your employees and your business
According to National Safety Council data, motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of workplace deaths, and drivers are four times more likely to crash from cell phone distracted driving. Even when your employees use hands-free devices, your business could be held liable for up to $25 million when they have an accident.
- Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 cause of workplace deaths
- Every 7 seconds, someone is injured in a car crash.
- Every 15 minutes, someone is killed
- Many of the crashes occur during the workday or daily commute
- Employers can be held liable for up to $25M for employee vehicle crashes
By creating a safe driving program on employee distracted driving—including texting and driving, and impaired driving— you can help
- Keep your employees safe
- Reduce your company’s insurance, workers’ compensation, and accident claims
- Lower vehicle maintenance costs
- Minimize your company’s liability and risk
Lutzie 43’s Company Safety Initiative
Since 2014, the Lutzie 43 Foundation has been on a mission to end impaired and distracted driving among adults and teens. Distracted and impaired driving deaths are preventable. Our purpose is to encourage and empower drivers of all ages to be positive ambassadors for safe driving.
Through our company partnerships, the Lutzie 43 Foundation can help your company change the narrative around employee distracted driving, and texting and driving, and help save lives.
43 Key Seconds Talk: More impactful than just statistics and numbers, Mike Lutzenkirchen’s 43 Key Seconds Talk is a raw, open conversation about a father who loses his son in an avoidable accident. Mike spreads his message of the dangers of distracted and impaired driving through this honest and courageous discussion of Philip’s life and the tragic car accident that led to his death. In this presentation, Mike provides a stark real-world example of what can happen when someone chooses to drive distracted or impaired and encourages your employees to reflect on their legacy to motivate a behavioral change behind the wheel.
Co-Branded 43 Key Seconds Keys: Show your employees you value their safety and wellbeing with co-branded 43 Key Seconds keys, designed with your logo and our 43 Key Seconds initiative. The keys serve as a symbol to prompt employees to take 43 seconds to complete the safe driving checklist before operating their vehicle. Encourage employees to keep the key on their keychain or within sight in their car as a constant reminder of Mike’s talk and the dangers of distracted and impaired driving.
Company Partners in Education: Expand your company’s community impact by sponsoring a 43 Key Seconds Talk with co-branded or tri-branded keys for teen drivers at a local school or community group. Teens ages 15-19 are most affected by distracted and impaired driving fatalities. Through our partnership, we can make a difference in the lives of your employees’ children and the greater community.
“43 Key Seconds – wanting to be a national symbol for distracted driving – and our mission fit perfectly… Not only is it Lutzie 43 Foundation saying do this, but you have the whole power of Children’s Hospital, which is state-wide. So I think that speaks to the importance of this mission, passion, and symbol.” – Marie Crew, Children’s of Alabama
