Background Statistics of Work-related Driving Accidents

According to the Department for Transport, more than one quarter of all road traffic accidents involve a person who is driving as a part of their job.

The Labour Force Survey states, around 72,000 work-related road traffic injuries occurred to UK-based workers in 2016. Among them, 29% of injuries resulted in strains and sprains.

Legal Responsibilities

Employers have a legal duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. to ensure the safety of workers, as far as is reasonably practicable. This law also applies to work activities on the road in the same way it does to other work activities. Hence, organisations need to manage the risks to drivers as a part of their health and safety arrangements.

Driving to work online training can help organisations to minimise the rate of work-related road accidents by creating awareness and providing safe driving tips among their drivers.
