For the majority of people, driving will be the most hazardous activity they do. It is estimated that one third of all road traffic collisions (RTCs) in Britain involve someone driving as part of their job and numerous other RTCs involving people travelling to or from their place of work.
Although the risks associated with driving cannot be totally controlled, an employer has a responsibility to take all reasonable steps to manage these risks and do everything reasonably practicable to protect people from harm in the same way as they would in the workplace.
HSE and Department for Transport produced joint a guidance in 2014, INDG382: Driving at Work, to help duty holders manage work-related road risk.
However, in recent years there have been significant developments in driving technologies and practices that have brought into question the currency of this guidance.
HSE are interested to hear from people who drive for work or employ those who do, across all industries including construction, to help identify how INDG382 can be improved in terms of relevance, currency, and accessibility.
