Nationally renowned safety expert David Wallace will be the featured speaker at The CEI Group Inc.'s booth at the NAFA Institute and Exposition in Austin, Texas, next month, the company announced.
Wallace, an assistant prosecutor and pioneer in traffic safety, founded one of the country’s first Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutor program. He will speak on "The Four Steps to Creating a Traffic Safety Culture at Work" at 11 a.m. on April 20 and April 21 at CEI’s Booth #501, and will be available to meet and greet visitors and answer questions before and after his talk. Wallace is affiliated with the Justice Speakers Institute.
CEI will be stressing throughout the event that fleets can reduce their accident rates by as much as 35% and save millions of dollars year with the right safety culture and systems that focus on changing driver behavior. Supported by case studies, CEI will also demonstrate that it’s possible for fleets to reduce their net accident repair expenditures by nearly 80%.
"With accident rates and traffic fatalities rising, and the epidemic of distracted driving showing no signs of weakening, it’s more important than ever that fleets adopt the most powerful safety culture and tools to prevent traffic accidents," said CEI’s Ken Latzko, senior director of sales, who will lead CEI’s conference team.
Wallace is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2013 Kevin E. Quinlan Award for Excellence in Traffic Safety, the National Highway Traffic Administration’s 2013 Public Safety Award, and the 2008 William Van Regenmorter Public Safety Award of the Michigan chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
