Do It For Me

If you’re doing, experiencing or ingesting anything that reduces

U.S. employees miss as many as 1.9 million workdays due to both on- and off-the-job vehicle crashes.

While companies can easily calculate costs of on-the-job vehicle crashes, the expense escalates when you factor missed worktime due to injuries and fatalities, not to mention the intangible impacts of lost knowledge and emotional pain.
