Distracted Driving Prevention On and Off the Job
Distracted Driving Prevention On (and off) the Job
- Policy – Why it’s important; Who it applies to; how to create it.
- Education – What employees need to know: how to make a lasting impact.
- Technology – What’s available: how it supports policy and education; which apps prevent manual cell phone use by the driver.
- Education – How to implement policies: which tech solution; what the ROI really is.
Combining informational and technological resources from strategic partners within the commercial safety sector, the PEERS foundation, a501(c)3. has created a one-of-its-kind, distracted driving prevention program for the workplace, incorporating PEERS “P.E.T.E.” executive overview, as well as its augmented reality distracted distracted driving education simulator (ARDDES). This program addresses the epidemic of distracted driving across the spectrum of commercial trucking and transportation, corporate and municipal fleets, heavy equipment operators, sales and service personnel, and government sectors. Anywhere people drive, PEERS foundation is there -working with employers, employees, insurers, and risk reduction professionals to support the goals of reducing costs, mitigating risks, and (above all) saving lives.
I had a very very pleasant experience with the staff from Peers. The augmented reality really gave our students a great experience to be behind the wheel and see the effects of driving while distracted, whether it was a phone or others talking and commenting. I definitely enjoyed the experience and I know the students did as well.
Our students and staff loved this event. It was very informative and students loved the simulation. Students talked about about how meaningful the message was and saw the damage that can occur through distracted driving.
I just want to thank you so much for having the driving simulator come to Seymour High School this week. The students learned a lot from this experience. The feedback was more than positive!
Thank you for graciously providing our students with a driving simulation they will never forget. I’d especially like to commend your staff members, Cindy and Mike for demonstrating professionalism, friendliness and patience. Your generous offering of time, equipment and personnel will certainly assist our students int their lives out of school.
We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both our students and teachers about both the presentation and the experience with your team. Our kid shad a great time, all while being educated.
Our students had very positive feedback regarding your team’s efforts. It was extremely rewarding to all.
Thank you so much for having PEERS Foundation come work with our students at Laurens District 55 High School. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we know our students learned so much from the opportunity.
This was a win, win for all parties. The staff of PEERS Foundation had a great rapport with our students. The texting and driving experience is a must for all new drivers.
Thank you for the wonderful job Mike and his team did. The students really enjoyed the presentation. I heard many positive comments and they seemed very engaged. I also appreciate the fact that your team did a great job being on time and setting up.
Our kids were highly engaged and the information was well received. I appreciated it so much and hope we can have another outing next school year!
