Driver safety should be a priority for every PMP
By Peter Young
Your daily routine may include using a variety of products and high temperatures to rid pests from your customers’ properties, but the most dangerous piece of equipment you handle each day is your vehicle. The most frequent insurance claims for pest management professionals (PMPs) are related to vehicles used on the job. That’s why, whether your company has one vehicle or a large fleet, driver safety should be a priority.
PCOpro’s John Culotta has written about this in previous DTY newsletters, but with an increase in the numbers of PMP commercial auto claims related to distracted driving — and considering that April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month — the issue warrants more attention. I urge you to visit Distraction.gov or the National Safety Council to learn more about this growing problem. You will see just how serious this issue is.
