Texting and driving liability


The U.S.-based Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Contractors Association is warning its members that they have significant liability if their employees are texting while driving, particularly where work is structured so that it’s necessary, encouraged or condoned.

All businesses should have a clear written driving policy that prohibits cell phone use while driving and must be able to show that employees are trained on the policy and that it is enforced, the association reports. They suggest attaching the policy in clear view of the driver on the inside of the vehicle.
