Isosure Limited Health & Safety Consultant
Serious injuries sustained by at-work drivers increased in 2016, by 11% to 1,305 compared with 2015. This is the highest number recorded since 2011, when 1,384 such motorists were badly hurt in accidents. 

Commercial vehicles and cars being driven for work that were involved in personal injury accidents continued to fall. Some 33,506 cars, buses/coaches, vans and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) crashed last year, compared with 35,530 in 2015 and 39,376 in 2014, according to the latest figures.

Also, the number of people killed on British roads while they were at work dropped slightly last year according to the latest figures published by the Department for Transport (DfT). Of the 1,792 killed in fatal accidents in 2016, 529 (29.5%) were at work at the time. 

As our motorways and roads become more congested and road works on our major routes are a constant cause of stress for all drivers, employers should consider specific training for their employees to highlight the need for due care and attention whilst driving on company business.

Look at our “Safe Driving for Work: Best Practice” which you’ll find at http://www.isosure.com/industry-specific-safety-training/safe-driving-for-work-best-practice/ which is a training programme for your employees covering varied topics ranging from distractions whilst driving to drugs and alcohol abuse.
