The first episode in the series is on workplace safety and policies. For many of us, some part of our job involves driving, some may be professional truck drivers, some may work in real estate or health care and sales and drive to a variety of different locations. Others may just commute to the office and maybe never really thought about driving as being part of work. In this episode, we discuss employers and their role in the safety equation when it comes to driving in the workplace, and also ways to influence safer choices among employees on the road.
