Occupational motor vehicle incidents (MVIs) are the number one cause of traumatic worker deaths in British Columbia; on average, 30 workers are killed each year.
Operating a motor vehicle requires a driver's full attention. Twenty-five per cent of all vehicle crashes that occur annually in B.C. can be attributed to distracted driving. Wireless devices, such as cell phones, are the number one cause of these distractions. Whatever the reason, distractions create entirely preventable hazards to occupational drivers and the public, and can adversely affect a company's performance and reputation.
