IAM Drive & Survive urge focus on road safety at work

IAM Drive & Survive is calling for Lord Young of Graffham to make driving for work a target area, after it was announced last week that he would be reviewing the operation of health & safety laws.

Simon Best, chief executive at the IAM, said: “Around a third of all UK road deaths are of those driving on business, so it’s common sense that this should be considered a priority area to be addressed in the review. 

“Company-provided driver training and risk management can prevent work-related road deaths, and organisations including IAM Drive and Survive can provide practical support in improving driving safety at work.

“The IAM willingly offers the Government expert advice on driver training, and will assist in any way possible.”
