    Motor Vehicle Accidents Case Study

    Results:
    • 30 percent reduction in motor vehicle accidents.
    • Many of the materials developed by the project team (e.g., Vehicle Pre-Startup Checklist) have been adopted for use at other Dow businesses.
    • While only work-related motor vehicle accidents were tracked for this project, It is likely that the driver education initiatives have also helped employees avoid accidents outside of working hours.
