Why Workplace Transport Risk Assessment Training Course is Vital

Each year, between 33 and 51 people are killed in workplace transport-related accidents, more than 1,000 major injuries occur, and about 5,000 other injuries are reported, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

A vast majority of these workplace transportation accidents involve injuries from being struck or run over by moving vehicles, falling from a vehicle due to load or having a vehicle overturn. Most of these accidents are preventable because they often occur due to poor design or poor traffic management systems.

Employers have a legal duty to ensure that their workforce is safe and secure whilst working, and should examine their worksites for any risks.
