    1. Seatbelt Safety Monthly Training Topic Ryder Safety and Loss Prevention

    2. 2 6/24/2012 Proprietary and Confidential SEATBELT SAFETY Information Objectives Participants Will Know: What is the Seatbelt law; The management and administrative costs of not wearing your safety belt; and Seatbelt Myths. The information in this program comes from the US Department of Transportation, FMCSA Increasing Safety Belt use In Your Company, March 2006.

    3. 3 COMMERCIAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY BELT LAW Safety Belt Use For CMV Drivers Is The Law Title 49, Section 392.16 of the Code Of Federal Regulations States; A commercial motor vehicle that has a seat belt assembly installed at the driver seat shall not be driven unless the driver has properly restrained himself / herself with the seat belt assembly. The following is a US Department of Transportation Study A recent study conducted by the US Department of Transportation shows only 54% of commercial motor vehicle drivers wear safety belts compared to 82% of passenger vehicle drivers. In 2004, close to half of the 634 commercial motor vehicle driver killed in crashes were not wearing safety belts. Of those killed, 168 of them were ejected from their vehicles, and nearly 3 out of 4 were not wearing safety belts.

    4. 4 Not wearing your safety belt is costly. Motor vehicle crashes of all types are the leading cause of lost work time and on-the-job fatalities in the U.S. In 2004, 634 professional truck drivers were killed in crashes. A total of 761 occupants of large trucks died in crashes. Transportation incidents were the number one cause of on-the-job deaths with 2,460 fatalities recorded out of a total of 5,703 fatal occupational injuries recorded. The average cost to a company per injury truck crash is $174,367 and per fatal truck crash is $3,469,962.

    5. 5 The Direct Costs Of Not Wearing Your Safety Belt Medical care and disability payments; physical and vocational rehabilitation, The loss of special knowledge or skills, Recruiting and replacing personnel, Reassigning and / or re-training employees, Lost business due to absenteeism, Legal Fees, and, Increase in long-term rates for workers compensation, property liability, commercial auto, and health insurance.

    6. 6 The Indirect Cost Of Employees Not Wearing Safety Belt Operational delays and losses resulting from the absence of the injured employees services; Diminished company reputation; Lost productivity resulting from using less experienced replacements, time taken by other employees to fill in, or to train replacements; Lowered employee morale; Regulatory and enforcement actions; and Inability to attract new employees and retain existing employees.

    7. 7 Why Wear Your Safety Belt? FATAL ACCIDENT STATISTICS In 2004, 634 drivers of large trucks died Almost half of the 634 commercial drivers killed in crashes were not wearing safety belts Of the 168 drivers who died as a result of being ejected from their trucks, 3 out of 4 of them were not wearing safety belts 5,190 fatalities occurred in large truck-related crashes 67% of truck drivers killed who were not wearing safety belt, were involved in single vehicle crashes NON FATAL ACCIDENT STATISTICS About 27,000 large truck occupants suffered nonfatal injuries in crashes, and of those, 4,000 were incapacitated 51% of truck-occupant-fatalities in large trucks involve rollovers. In a rollover, a truck driver is 80% less likely to die when wearing a safety belt 29% of the truck drivers surveyed reported that they had been involved in a truck crash at some point in their career 116,000 injuries occurred in large truck-related crashes 23,000 drivers of large trucks are estimated to have been injured in crashes

    8. 8 Why Seatbelts Are Effective Safety belts can keep you from being knocked unconscious improving your chances of escape. Fire or submersion occurs in less than 5% of fatal large truck crashes. In 2004, 168 truck drivers died when they were ejected from their cabs during a crash. In a frontal collision occurring at 30 mph, an unbelted person continues to move forward at 30 mph causing his/her to hit the frontal components of the cab interior at about 30 mph. This is the same velocity a person falling from the top of a three story building would experience upon impact with the ground.

    9. 9 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 1 Safety belts are uncomfortable and restrict movement FACT The 2005 Transportation Research Board study on commercial drivers safety belt use found many drivers do not find wearing safety belts to be uncomfortable or restrictive of their movements. Once they correctly adjust the seat, lap and shoulder belt, most drivers find that discomfort and restrictive movement can be alleviated.

    10. 10 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 2 Wearing a safety belt is a personal decision that doesn't affect anyone else FACT Not wearing a safety belt can certainly affect your family and loved ones. It can affect other motorists since wearing a safety belt can help you avoid losing control of your vehicle in a crash. It's also the Law; Federal and State regulations require commercial vehicle drivers to buckle up. Safety belts are a drivers last line of defense in a crash.

    11. 11 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 3 Safety belts prevent your escape from a burning or submerged vehicle FACT Safety belts can keep you from being knocked unconscious, improving your chances of escape. Fire or submersion occur in less than 5% of fatal large truck crashes.

    12. 12 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 4 Its better to be thrown clear of the wreckage in the event of a crash FACT An occupant of a vehicle is four times as likely to be fatally injured when thrown from the vehicle. In 2004, 168 truck drivers died when they were ejected from their cabs during a crash.

    13. 13 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 5 It takes too much time to fasten your safety belt 20 times a day FACT Buckling up takes about three seconds. Even buckling up 20 times a day requires only one minute.

    14. 14 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 6 A large truck will protect you. Safety belts are unnecessary FACT In 2004, 634 drivers of large trucks died in truck crashes and 303 of those truck drivers were not wearing safety belts.

    15. 15 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 7 Safety belts aren't necessary for low-speed driving FACT In a frontal collision occurring at 30 mph, an unbelted person continues to move forward at 30 mph causing him/her to hit frontal interior components (such as the steering wheel, instrument panel, or windshield) at about 30 mph. This is the same velocity a person falling from the top of a three-story building would experience upon impact with the ground.

    16. 16 SEATBELT MYTH MYTH 8 A lap belt offers sufficient protection FACT The lap and shoulder belt design has been proven to hold a driver securely behind the wheel in the event of a crash, greatly increasing the driver's ability to maintain control of the vehicle and minimizing the chance for serious injury or death.
