    HSE issues new road safety guidance

    By David Brown on April 29, 2014

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued updated guidance on work-related road safety, which now includes examples of things employers can do to reduce the risk of road traffic accidents.

    The new Driving At Work: Managing Work-Related Road Safety guide also tells companies where they can find more in-depth information around the issue from organisations such as road safety charity Brake.

    More than a quarter of all road casualties in the UK (26%) currently involve someone who was at work while driving.

    Employers are being urged to read the updated guidance in a bid to cut down on the number of car crash claims, improve staff morale and their company’s reputation and bring down costs.

    HSE guide ‘essential for companies’

    Brake said the HSE guide remains essential for all companies whose employees drive for work, and for self-employed drivers.

    Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive, Brake, said: “Driving is the riskiest activity most employees engage in and a huge proportion of devastating road casualties involve someone who’s driving on company time.

    “It’s therefore essential that organisations with staff who drive for work are aware of the simple, low-cost steps they can take to protect their drivers and the public.

    “I would urge all organisations with employees who drive on work time to read this updated HSE guidance, alongside Brake’s essential guide to fleet safety, to ensure their risk management policies and practices are up to date and in line with best practice.”

    The charity’s Fleet Safety Forum helps all firms and organisations whose staff drive for work. It has recently launched its own road safety guidance, Essential Guide To Fleet Safety, along with the Department for Transport.

    Its Driving At Work guide, which is aimed specifically at small businesses, is available at brakepro.org/essential-guide.
