Fleet management – Director’s briefing
According to the HSE over a quarter of all road traffic accidents involve somebody who is driving as part of their work.
Analysis carried out by the RAC Foundation of previously unpublished data, from the annual Labour Force Survey conducted by the Office for National Statistics, shows that in 2011 an estimated 73,000 people were seriously or slightly hurt in accidents while travelling on company business, (excluding commuting).
This is 36% of the total number of 202,000 people recorded injured (but not killed) in all road accidents for that year. Organisations, their directors and senior managers all carry a legal responsibility to ensure that journeys undertaken on behalf of their business can be undertaken safely.
