Why is safety culture important to reinforce? According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), in the US every 12 minutes someone dies in a motor vehicle crash, every 10 seconds an injury occurs and every 5 seconds a crash occurs. Many of these incidents occur during the workday or during the commute to and from work. Employers bear the cost for injuries that occur both on and off the job. According to The National Safety Council, cell phone use is reported just prior to impact in 1.6 million crashes in the US annually. We want to help change those statistics. With COVID, crashes and phone usage while driving have become even more of an issue. Between January and November of 2020, the 63% increase in collisions per million miles is just one of the many indications that now more than ever, driver safety is at severe risk.
Why do employers like our platform? We have a live dashboard to help organizations oversee/reward safe driving behaviors. This allows management to encourage their team via tailored competitions, the accountability factor, and of course the free rewards.
How does it work? SAFE 2 SAVE rewards drivers for every minute they travel without moving their phone and engage in tech-related distractions. By eliminating the urge to ‘tech’ while driving and initializing a culture shift, we are able to obtain sustainable change. Once employees start earning points, there are tons of rewards immediately available that are free to your company
