Work Related Road Safety Study by TRL for IOSH

IOSH, the chartered body for health and safety professionals have recently released the Transport Research Laboratory study they funded into Work Related Road Safety.

Simply and effectively communicated, it highlights the requirements for:

  • Properly planned journeys to avoid fatigue
  • Controlling the risks from distractions such as eating and mobile phone use
  • Consideration of alternatives to driving, such as train, teleconferencing or video
  • Encouragement of ‘near miss’ reporting from employees, in order to learn lessons

It also brought to light the interesting success of ‘group discussions’ among employees, in order to look at improvements to policy and ways of avoiding incidents in the future, along with the use of in-vehicle monitoring systems.
