June 2021 – The National Safety Month: How Safety Track is helping to prevent road accidents
25 years ago, the National Safety Council (NSC) established June as National Safety Month in the United States. The goal is to raise awareness of the leading safety topics and reducing preventable injuries and deaths at workplaces, homes, and public areas. In 2019, more than 5,000 large trucks were involved in a fatal crash, a 43% increase since 2010.
To help increase safety awareness, the NSC has released the NSC Safe driving toolkit – an area where Safety Track’s technology can make a big difference. With the help of Safety Track’s full line of GPS Fleet Tracking Solutions, we can prevent many road accidents by encouraging the responsible driving. When it comes to Driver’s safety on roads, today’s fleets face many challenges. Distracted driving is the single biggest factor in vehicle collisions. According to the NSC, at least 1.6 million collisions and fatal crashes occur each year because of people making calls or sending text messages while driving.
