This Fact Sheet is a policy on developing an effective safe mobile phone use – summary. The broader document can be found at or

The NRSPP launched the Safe Use of Mobiles in Vehicles (SUMV) Working Group in October 2015 to help organisations reduce the risk relating to their workers when using mobile phones whilst in vehicles.

An objective of SUMV is to develop and promote a good practice guide to assist organisations with the development and successful implementation of a safe mobile phone use in vehicles policy.

The guide will be evidence-based and with a common sense approach for all organisations to adopt. The guide will outline how to successfully implement a mobile phone policy and monitor its effectiveness. This document is a short fact sheet summarising the core components within the policy guide.
