How can employers reduce occupational road risk?

Posted in: Car Accidents Road Traffic Accidents 

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has called on employers to consider how they could make a positive difference to the safety of their employees who drive for work.

It is estimated that up to a third of road traffic accidents involve someone who is using the road for work purposes. In 2012, this means that up to 7,679 people across Great Britain could have been killed or seriously injured because of an “at work” road accident.

RoSPA is encouraging employers to think about the impact that work-related road accidents can have, not just on the drivers and those on the road around them, and on the business, but also on the wider wellbeing of the families involved. It is also calling on drivers themselves, regardless of why they get behind the wheel for their job, to consider the issue.

Managing occupational road risk is all about having a good system in place,” said Kevin Clinton, RoSPA’s head of road safety. “But it doesn’t have to be a tedious, tick-box exercise – employers can make a real difference to the safety of their employees who drive for work by addressing this issue through risk assessment, training and other actions like journey planning, schedule setting, vehicle choice and maintenance and learning from accidents, should any occur.
