These materials are not stand–alone plug and play modules. They’re designed to present core safety concepts in an active participation meeting setting led by a presenter. This style of training enhances retention and holds the participant’s attention while the program and presenter guide them to the desired solution.
Rear end crashes have a high probability of being severe, both in terms of the human cost and claim settlement costs.

Many times post crash conversations tend to center around a discussion of fault. However, if the intent is to discover and address root causes, it's important to look beyond fault and examine preventability. Approaching a crash from this perspective puts into play important defensive driving techniques. This video uses real world situations to illustrate how to avoid driving into a bad situation and being involved in a crash.
This module explores the defensive driving tactic of "managing" the space around you. Although professional drivers can't control the actions of others, they can remain aware of vehicles around them and take proactive action to avoid driving into a bad situation. It's this awareness and anticipation of possible future events that sets professional drivers apart.
Although we've all been trained to think in terms of following distance, this module examines the subject in terms of time. Maintaining a safe distance from traffic ahead is a critical part of defensive driving. This module also takes a look at the various components that add up to a vehicle's total stopping distance. With a running time of six minutes there's room in your next safety meeting for this important discussion.
This five minute training module uses an important subject to illustrate the importance of defensive driving and avoiding distractions. This module is long enough to convey the message with impact but short enough to fit into any safety presentation.
