SAFETY is defined as the prevention of loss, and there is no greater loss than that of a child.
TEEN SAFETY is one of the most important topics a parent faces, especially when it comes to driving. The “rite of passage” when parents allow their teen drivers to venture out on their own is very stressful and challenging. Education and prevention are the keys to successfully negotiating this challenge.
The Board of Directors and our Foundation partners want to share tools and tips to make this journey successful. Many times this sharing takes the form of stories…., stories of the nature you do not want to experience for yourself.
There are three areas we’d like to focus on in hopes of educating parents and teens to some of the challenges you face.
These areas are:
- Hazardous Road Conditions, and how they may impact you and your teen driver.
- Vehicle Safety, namely distracted driving.
- Workplace Safety, as it applies to young workers and how Worker Compensation laws may impact you.
