In 2009, over 5,400 people died in motor vehicle crashes because of distraction and thousands more were injured. Texting while driving, of course, is the major source of distracted driving and is becoming more common for workers who drive service vehicles, delivery trucks, and their own cars while they are on the job.

Every year, more and more workers are given cell phones to call in or text information to their employers. 

And nearly every year, car and truck accidents and crashes are the leading cause of death at work.

If employees are required to drive on the job, they shouldn't be texting while driving.  And OSHA is calling for employers to prohibit texting while driving on the job.
