Companies remain concerned about employee use of mobile devices while driving

Employers continue to be concerned about the risk and liability posed by employee use of mobile devices while driving on the job. Seven in 10 companies have adopted written policies designed to curb employee distracted driving, but only 32% are confident that current enforcement methods are effective at achieving compliance.

These are among the new findings from Aegis Mobility’s third-annual survey of 547 fleet safety and risk management professionals. Key findings include:
"Hands-Free" and "Zero Tolerance" are most popular policies. Forty-five percent of existing employer policies prohibit all use, except hands-free. Forty-one percent prohibit all use, no exceptions. Twelve percent prohibit texting, emailing and browsing.

Efforts to enforce distracted driving policies remain steady. Eighty-six percent of companies report taking some steps to enforce distracted driving policies.

Confidence is lacking in current policy enforcement. Confidence in current enforcement efforts is limited. Only 32% report they are "very confident" that current methods are effective. Sixty percent are "somewhat confident," while 8% are "not confident."

Interest in policy technology continues to grow. Twenty-two percent of companies plan to evaluate either device-based software, device analytics or in-vehicle cameras within the next 12 months to better enforce compliance with distracted driving policies.
"The year-over-year results of our survey show that fleet operators continue to recognize the serious risks associated with employee use of mobile phones while driving," says Aegis Mobility CEO Paul Zimmerman. "Further, the survey results show that employers lack confidence in current enforcement methods and seek technology solutions to automate compliance with mobile device use policies."
