The review, published last week, charts the Government's progress on its road safety targets for the past three years. It highlighted work-related road safety as one issue requiring more attention.
The review states: 'There is a need to encourage more employers to adopt best practice to reduce risks to their employees when out on the road.
As well as delivering casualty savings, this reduces companies' costs in respect of staff absence and vehicle repair costs.'
The review outlines measures to improve driver education, training and testing between now and 2010 when the strategy ends.
It says 'improved awareness' by employers and employees about road safety for those who drive as part of their work should help improve standards of private motoring. Vehicle manufacturers are also targeted in the report, in a bid to improve safety for drivers.
Government initiatives to improve safety include a voluntary agreement with car manufacturers to fit anti-lock brake systems to all new cars and car-derived vans by July 2004.
It also calls for advanced side impact protection, better frontal impact protection through vehicle to vehicle compatibility and consumer information initiatives for 'primary' safety through EuroNCAP.
The Road Safety Strategy is set to run for another six years and in the review, the Government outlined its agenda for the remaining period.
It said: 'We shall continue to highlight risks faced by those who use the roads at work, continue to inform employers of the benefits and continue to encourage adoption of best practice.'
