As part of the Workplace Safety North (WSN) Feed Your Brain Series, you’re invited to attend a free webinar, “Avoid distracted driving using mindfulness techniques,” on Wednesday, February 26, from 9:00 to 10 am ET.

You know that feeling when you arrive at your workplace and can hardly remember the route you took?  Were you distracted? Nearly 65 per cent of near crashes have some form of driver distraction.  According to the Canadian Automobile Association, checking a text message for 5 seconds while travelling 90 km hour means you have just travelled the length of an entire football field blindfolded.
