Does Your Company Have a Cell Phone Policy?

I'm working on a white paper with my client Zoom Safer about corporate liability that arises from employee cell phone use behind the wheel. Zoom Safer has begun to explore this topic here. In this new paper, we discuss the elements of a sound company policy that addresses employee cell phone use.

Essentially, if businesses don't address it, then they can be accused of condoning irresponsible driving behavior resulting in loss to life or limb.

The first step is to institute a written Fleet Safety policy that addresses cell phone use while driving.

Does your company have a policy? What does it include? How is the policy enforced?
