Latest road safety reports available

Preventing Road Accidents and Injuries for the Safety of Employees (PRAISE) has produced its second report - 'Fit for Road Safety: From Risk Assessment to Training'.

As part of its PRAISE project, the European Transport Safety Council published the second report, which shows how driver risk assessment and training can improve work-related road safety.

The report considers risk assessment as a basis for training, and is of relevance for employers managing all types of vehicles.

It is divided into four sections: risk assessment and the business case for driver training in the work context; driver training covered by EU legislation (truck and bus drivers); driver training of all other vehicle classes; and existing employer level initiatives and best practices.

Along with this report, the council has also published its second fact sheet, a case study of the Suckling Transport company and an interview with its managing director, Peter Larner.

Suckling Transport specialises in the transportation of fuel by road and wishes to differentiate itself on this market through its commitment to road safety, notably via driver training.

The fact sheet can be downloaded here.
