Based on reports from the Department for Transport, more than a quarter of all road traffic incidents involve somebody who is driving as part of their work.
The legal requirements related to health and safety at work, also applies to work activities on the road, in similar way as it does on site. For the majority of people, driving is the most dangerous work activity that they carry out as part of their job.
Very few organisations can operate without using the road in one way or another and millions of vehicles including lorries, vans, taxis, buses, emergency service vehicles, company cars, motorcycles and bicycles are used for work purposes every single day.
