The Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) has released a free Cost of Collisions Calculator, developed through a cooperative agreement with NHTSA, to assist employers' vehicle safety efforts. You can use it to help improve vehicle safety and reduce costs in your operation.
The crash cost calculator includes three components:
- On-the-Job Crash Costs
- Off-the-Job Crash Costs
- Return on Investment (ROI) Guidance Calculator
Employers are in a unique position to directly influence their employees driving habits - and literally save lives. Those with robust road safety programs understand that whether an employee is involved in a crash when driving on the job or off the job, it still affects the employer. Implementing proactive safety initiatives such as defensive driver training and establishing comprehensive policies that address distractions, seat belts and fatigue are just a few measures employers can take to reduce employee risk behind the wheel.
Driving is an activity that many do every day, and that makes it easy to forget how dangerous it can be. According to the NHTSA, 37,461 people died on U.S. roads in 2016. In 2015, 2.4 million roadway users were injured.
