ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Walt Disney workers are now prohibited from texting while driving on the job.
The new ban which recently took effect covers all Disney workers, including the 60,000 employees at Orlando-based Walt Disney World.
Even before the companywide policy was issued, Disney World employees whose jobs involve transporting guests, such as bus drivers and monorail pilots, were already prohibited from texting.
The ban prohibits employees from making or receiving phone calls while driving on the job unless they use a single ear piece. It applies to workers who are either driving company vehicles or using their own vehicles while on the job.
The policy does not apply to employees during their drives to or from work.
