Stop by the Road Safety at Work virtual booth and attend our session entitled Managing Driving-Related Stress.
Safe driving demands physical and mental alertness, which stress can impair. Stress is an everyday occurrence, but too much of it or negative stress can lead to mental fatigue or other negative consequences. People who drive when overstressed can find their decision-making impaired and experience deteriorating performance, which can have devastating consequences.
In this presentation, managers and supervisors will learn about the different types of stress and stressors – both positive and negative — drivers face. They will also learn about approaches, practices, and tips to help employees understand and manage negative driving-related stress.
