Whether you work in a factory or an office building, many workers have one thing in common: Getting to and from work involves driving a vehicle. Following these basic safe driving tips from OSHA can help protect workers during what is often the most dangerous part of their workday – the commute.

Standard precautions:

  • Ensure you and any passengers in the vehicle are wearing safety belts at all times.
  • Be sure you are well-rested before driving, and avoid taking any medications that may cause drowsiness.
  • Never drive or accept a ride from someone who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Set a realistic goal about the number of miles you can safely travel in one day.

Remain alert:

  • Driving requires all of your attention, so avoid distractions on the road such as adjusting the radio, talking on a cell phone, or eating or drinking.
  • As you drive, continually scan the roadway ahead for possible situations that may require quick action. Have a plan in mind.
  • If taking a long drive, stop about every two hours to rest, stretch or take a walk.

Avoid road rage:

  • Remain calm in the face of traffic.
  • Reduce stress by carefully planning routes ahead of time, carrying a map in your vehicle, allowing plenty of travel time and – if possible – avoiding the busiest travel times and roadways.
  • Be patient and courteous toward other drivers on the road.
  • Do not take the actions of other drivers personally.
