National Safety Council, Nebraska offers these ideas for employee safety:
Start all conference calls by asking if anyone is calling-in while driving. Excuse them from the call until they are safely parked.
Include an alternate phone number on your voicemail, so a colleague or administrative assistant can filter your calls while you're driving.
If an assistant is screening your calls, set your phone to deliver a unique ring tone if there is an urgent call. You will know to park as soon as possible, then call the office.
Field sales teams could schedule coordinated weekly blocks of time for conference calls when they do not travel, such as a morning or afternoon once or twice a week.
Conduct parking lot observations for phone and safety belt use. See Nebraska Safety Belt Honor Roll for more information on conducting a workplace observation.

Get employees involved in creating policy materials. Employees could create campaign slogans and personalized activities appropriate for their office culture. This will encourage buy-in and acceptance of a policy.
