National Safety Council to Host Free Seminar on Employer Cell Phone Policy

March 6, 2013

The National Safety Council is hosting an employer cell phone policy seminar on April 25, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.

Attendees must register, but there will be no charge to attend. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Cell phone-distracted driving is a national epidemic. According to the National Safety Council, nearly one in four crashes involves drivers distracted by a cell phone. Businesses without policies prohibiting cell phone use while driving are exposing their employees and themselves to increased risk and liability.

The seminar will address the following:

  • Why cell phone distracted driving is dangerous
  • How employers can be held liable if an employee is involved in a crash where cell phone use was a factor
  • What to include in a cell phone policy
  • How to build management support for a cell phone policy
  • How to educate employees about the policy and ensure compliance.

    Hello, this seminar is in person only and right now being held at a few locations in California because it's funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety and Glendora Police Dept. We are talking with funders about holding it in other states. Meanwhile much of the info from the conference can be found in our policy kit for employers at http://cellphonekit.nsc.org. I hope this helps!
