This toolkit is designed to enable companies to conduct awareness-raising sessions with staff who drive as part of their work.

The toolkit focuses on a broad range of road safety related matters and is designed to help employers, managers and occupational drivers identify best practice for their organisation. It is available for any small to medium sized business in Scotland.

Prior to using this toolkit, businesses should have:
Considered the occupational risks or potential hazards that their staff who drive for work may encounter during the course of their working day.
Considered control measures and put in place occupational road risk policies and procedures to minimise risk.
Given consideration to the development of a company "Driver Handbook".

This ScORSA Driving Risks at Work toolkit, if used properly, will enable organisations to deliver road safety advice, will help to generate discussion relating to some of the risks involved and can be used to inform and convey company policy. Ultimately this will lead to an improvement in the overall safety culture of the organisation which will benefit the organisation.
