- About EASST
Every day millions of people use roads for work - without a second thought. Yet the Occupational Road Safety Alliance estimates that between one quarter and one third of reported road casualties involve people driving, riding or otherwise using the road for work. The costs associated with occupational road safety are high for employers, employees and impact service delivery, which calls for more action on management of occupational road risk. Reducing road risk of commercial vehicles and public transport could play a very significant role in cutting road fatalities.
EASST in partnership with Cranfield University and IRU Academy is pleased to offer an online course aimed at improving knowledge and skills in managing road safety at work via the EASST Academy. Designed for companies and individuals, the course is focused on the link between driver behaviour and crash involvement, highlighting the role of a fleet manager in raising awareness and importance of setting up and communicating road safety policy across the company.
