    At-work driving undergoes review

    By David Brown on July 2, 2014

    Figures show that up to a third of road traffic accidents involve someone who is using the roads for work purposes.

    A new Strategic Review of the Management of Occupational Road Risk highlights how road deaths and serious injuries involving at-work drivers and riders remain one of the nation’s most serious road safety issues.

    The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) found that 4,726 people have been tragically killed and more than 40,000 seriously injured in collisions involving an at-work driver or rider – not including commuting – since 2006.

    It also discovered that it is often the other road user in the accident who is killed or injured.

    In 2012, for instance; 87 at-work drivers were killed and 16,720 injured in these collisions, yet 422 other road users were also killed and 25,484 injured.

    Key recommendations

    RoSPA and the Centre for Transport Studies at University College London, which commissioned the strategic review, have made a number of key recommendations to improve safety on the road.

    The partnership want to see more done to ensure work-related road safety is given the same widespread attention as general health and safety, as well as properly evaluate the effectiveness of different approaches to the management of occupational road risk.

    Conducting more work into the effectiveness of in-car data recorders and monitoring technologies is another suggestion, as is reviving the Occupational Road Safety Alliance in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders.

    They also recommend improving data on work-related driving risk – including better recording by the police and by the Health and Safety Executive.

    Road traffic accident compensation

    Road traffic accidents are unfortunately an all-too-common sight nationwide.

    If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, whether you’re the driver or a passenger, you could be entitled to road traffic accident compensation.
