Driving is the most dangerous work activity that most people do, and it contributes to far more accidental deaths and serious injuries than all other work-related activities.
Very few organisations can operate without using the road. Millions of vehicles – lorries, vans, taxis, buses, emergency service vehicles, company cars, motorcycles, bicycles – are used for work purposes, and many people work on foot on the road (maintenance workers, refuse collectors, postal workers, vehicle breakdown employees, the police and so on).
Unfortunately, this means that all these workers face risks on the road because they are doing their jobs. They can also create risks for everyone else on the road.
This report is structured in the following to assist organisations in managing and reducing the risk of driving for work related purposes.
