The ‘Drop It And Drive’ Approach to Distracted Driving Prevention
Our use of ‘Science & Stories over Statistics’ has proven effective in changing driver behaviours and beliefs. As Founder & Executive Director, I partnered with a diverse team of speakers including a retired Captain with the Surrey Fire Service and the Surrey RCMP Traffic Division. Our multi-speaker seminars are energetic, thought provoking, improvisational and interactive with our audience.

‘I would highly recommend to any school, municipality or corporation in Canada to have Drop It And Drive attend their organization to present to their students, staff or key stakeholders.’ -City of Ottawa, Traffic Management and Operational Support Branch
Our corporate risk management and employee safety program is ideal for JOH&SC (Joint Occupational Health and Safety Committees) and HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) professionals seeking relevant seminar topics.

Drop It And Drive Program Overview
We offer the only corporate program of its kind in Canada/North America.
Program Goal – Working together to reduce preventable workplace injuries and fatalities caused by distractions in the workplace.
Joint Worker/Supervisor Seminar:
Although we offer four separate programs: supervisor seminar, worker seminar, supplemental training program and the joint worker/supervisor seminar; we have found that from a joint OH&S perspective a joint worker/supervisor seminar is the most universally applicable and relevant.
The primary focus for our corporate program is safety in the workplace; whether that’s a construction site, mining operation, harvest site, head office, or even the commute to and from the worksite. While distractions related to electronic devices are more readily identifiable and easily addressed in policies, other areas of distraction are less known but just as risky, such as fatigue, complacency, and cognition. We introduce the science and research behind these distraction risks in a way that allows our audience to transition from what they think they know to a new understanding that ultimately creates behavioural change and increased worker safety.
