A third of road casualties may be injured while driving for work

As many as one in three road casualties may be injured while driving for work. This includes not just the drivers of heavy goods vehicles, buses and coaches, but also those who are driving cars on the way to and from business appointments.

For the past four years, Driving for Better Business, delivered by RoadSafe on behalf of the Department for Transport, has campaigned to raise awareness of the importance of work-related road safety in the business community and public sector by using advocates drawn from these communities to promote the business benefits of managing it effectively.

Its latest conference will highlight the achievements made by those organisations in cutting risk and improving performance. It will also highlight the resources available to organisations wishing to embark on a similar journey.
