3 Keys to Defensive Driving

When we are out driving on the roads, we know that not everyone drives well. Some people speed aggressively. Others wander into another lane because they aren’t paying attention. Some people driving behind us may follow too closely, make sudden turns without signaling, or crisscross in the traffic without any concern for other’s safety.

Aggressive drivers are known road hazards, causing many traffic accidents. But inattentive driving is becoming more of a problem as people “multi-task” by talking on the phone, drinking or eating as they drive. We can’t control the actions of other drivers. However, learning defensive driving skills can help us avoid the dangers caused by other people’s careless driving.



Is Car A Confined Space?

Many times when we think of confined space, one question strikes our mind, “Is that really a confined space?”

I was skeptical because I was not told that people, whom I am going to work with, will be the biggest resistance to what I wanted and achieved and was paid for, a safe environment for work.
