Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry website recently added End Distracted Driving (EndDD) as a training resource on the Pennsylvania Training for Health and Safety (PATHS) website.
PATHS is a “ … no-fee, statewide service established by the Department of Labor & Industry, Bureau of Workers' Compensation's Health and Safety Division to provide employers and employees with easy access to cost-effective health and safety resources.” The PATHS program works to help create safer workplaces, which benefits both employers and employees throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
Joel Feldman established EndDD to raise awareness and promote action against distracted driving. The organization is sponsored by the Casey Feldman Foundation, which was created in memory of Joel Feldman’s 21-year-old daughter who was killed by a distracted driver in 2009. EndDD seeks to “… passionately advocate, educate and support efforts to eliminate distracted driving” in honor of those who have lost a loved one to a distracted driving accident.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry's efforts to keep the citizens of Pennsylvania safe through education and awareness initiatives,” Feldman said. “Scott Weiant, Chief of the Health and Safety Division of the Department, and everyone else associated with the Department have taken a very proactive stance on prevention. The PATHS website contains a wealth of resources to prevent all types of accidents.”
Along with a link to EndDD’s website, PATHS provides distracted driving posters and cell phone policies by the National Safety Council. All of these resources are part of the program’s efforts to promote Accident Prevention through Education.
Feldman is a shareholder of the Philadelphia law firm Anapol Schwartz which has a number of highly qualified accident injury attorneys, many of whom have dedicated their time and effort to prevent distracted driving. He often guest lectures at high schools and hospitals to help raise awareness of distractions while driving and to prevent more accidents from happening.
EndDD’s mission is “ … to preserve life and promote safety on a large scale through advocacy, education, and action. It is [their] hope that we can prevent families and friends from suffering the loss of a loved one because of distracted driving.”
