The aim of this research is to identify initiatives that increase the safety of those who drive for work.

The Health and Safety Executive estimate that 25-33% of all serious and fatal road collisions involve someone who was Ďat workí when the collision occurred. This report examines the evidence to establish why at work drivers are over represented in road collisions, examines the effectiveness of current initiatives and presents recommendations for reducing collisions that involve work-related drivers.

The report is the third conducted as part of Devonís Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project with the University of Plymouth. The KTP project is designed to help Devonís road safety team develop a clear evidence base for its next long term strategy. The next stage of the project will be designing a course on evidence based practice for road safety professionals.
