Work Related Road Safety
Workplace Transport

"Work Related Road Safety and Workplace Transport Safety are key issues for all organisations".






As an employer you have a duty of care to ensure your employees are working in a safe environment and are not exposed to unnecessary risk. This duty of care is also extended to anyone that may be affected by an employees activities, both in the workplace, or whilst driving at work. 

Driving on the Highway  

Driving for work, also known as Work Related Road Safety or Occupational Road Risk, is one of the most dangerous work activities an employee can undertake and many thousands are killed or seriously injured every year. This is not only financially damaging to a company in terms of the cost of the accident but can also damage your reputation.

“If your drivers use their own vehicles while driving for work, as their employer, you still have a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of those employees while they are using that vehicle for a work journey.”

Driving in the Workplace  

Movement of vehicles around a company premise including cars, vans, lorries and lift trucks, is considered to be ‘Workplace transport’.

Many thousands of accidents happen each year in the workplace resulting in death or serious injury, and according to the Health and Safety Executive:

'the most common accidents are, people falling from or being struck by a vehicle, objects falling from a vehicle, or vehicles overturning.'
