"Everyone has a part to play in trying to reduce the number of deaths, but it is extremely important that all businesses and organisations with people on the roads for work check they are doing everything possible to keep them safe,” Willie Wills, RoSPA road safety manager for Scotland, said.
“It is estimated that up to a third of road traffic accidents involve someone who is at work at the time.
"Employers have a responsibility to manage the risks faced by their employees when driving and also the risk those employees pose to other road users.
Employers, he said, need to consider issues such as training, tackling fatigue and planning safe routes as part of an overall strategy for managing occupational road risk.
"Fleet managers should check they are adopting best practice so they are confident they are doing all they can to reduce accidents on our roads."
