Driver Safety Training to Combat Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is an epidemic that affects the entire driving public, including pest control companies and HIIG-CRU. To help insureds reduce auto claims and to build their comprehensive auto loss control programs, HIIG-Cru now offers Driver Safety Training on fifth workdays monthly to accommodate your regular training regimens and the business operations of pest control companies. The 45 minutes training session is conducted in an interactive, live format by Allen Fugler Director of Risk Management, a 27-year veteran of the pest management profession. Attendees simply log into GoToMeeting to see and hear the presentation; insureds can circulate and return a sign in sheet to HIIG-CRU to document attendance for underwriting consideration at policy renewal.
The training is specific to pest control technicians and focuses on their roles as professional drivers between service stops, the dangers of distracted driving, and how pest control companies have the legal responsibility to address distracted driving.
Sessions will be scheduled on a “fifth workday” of most months, depending on how the dates fall within a work week, at 7:30am ET and 10:30 ET/7:30 PT (to accommodate the west coast workday.) These dates are frequently requested as the fit within common training schedules and monthly route completions.
To schedule your training session, email HIIG-CRU Loss Control. You will receive log in credentials, instructions for connecting to the driver training session, and a sign in sheet that you can print, circulate, sign, scan and return.
