Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/20/2017 -- Thackray Crane Rental, a family-owned and operated company that offers crane rentals in PA, NJ, DE, and other areas, is set to host its 10th annual safety meeting. This event will take place on Wednesday, June 28, at 6 p.m., at the Ironworkers Local 401 Hall in Philadelphia, PA. The presentation will feature "Distracted Driving - A Traffic Safety Epidemic" by keynote speaker David D. Teater. A corporate consultant from FocusDriven, Mr. Teater is a nationally recognized traffic safety advocate.
The main topic of this year's meeting, as noted by the feature presentation, is distracted driving. Not only is Thackray Crane Rental inviting their employees, but they are also welcoming their employees' teenage sons and daughters, who may be at an increased risk from driving distractions, as new drivers. The company's goal is to encourage an open dialogue between parents and their teenage kids regarding distracted driving, and subsequently, to prevent it from happening.
Mr. Teater's career includes serving as CEO of many private companies, including 20 years with an automotive supplier. In 2009, he joined the National Safety Council (NSC) when it advocated for a nationwide ban on cell phone use while driving. He also helped lead the NSC's efforts in reducing fatalities and injuries caused by distracted driving.
