Occupational Road Safety Management

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.
