DOW’s employees are our most valuable asset. That’s why our Safety Topic of the Month is directed at them and for that matter, all of us. We’ve all been taught how to drive safely, but unfortunately, we get a little laxed with some of the basics like yielding, tailgating, and being a patient and courteous driver. Trust me, I know how difficult it is to follow the rules of road etiquette, but it’s always in our best interest to stay cool, calm and collected.
There are also the most important rules of the road which we all need to get better with. Talking on the telephone, texting while driving and not wearing a seat belt. The first two are MAJOR distractions that can, and too often do, result in serious traffic accidents and sometimes those accidents can be fatal. The seat belt not being fastened just quadruples the risk every time you answer a call or decide you just can’t wait to text someone back.
When driving on the job, you are a moving billboard for DOW Building Services. Always be courteous and protect your reputation and the reputation of the company you work for....DOW. While you’re at it, follow those rules and stay safe out there!
