The Number One Cause Of Workplace Injuries And Fatalities

It's driving. You don't have to be a long-haul trucker to be at risk from a motor vehicle accident on the job. You could be a sales rep or a manager driving to a job site, or even an office worker running to the store to pick up an office supply.
