Briefing: 5th EU Road Safety Action Programme 2020-2030

2016 was the third consecutive poor year for road safety: 25,670 people lost their lives on EU roads compared to 26,200 the previous year – a 2% decrease. But this followed a 1% increase in 2015 and stagnation in 2014. In addition, around 135,000 people were seriously injured on European roads in 2014 according to European Commission estimates based on the MAIS 3+ standard definition of a serious injury.

Tapping the potential for reducing work-related road deaths and injuries (PIN Flash 33)

Tapping the potential for reducing work-related road deaths and injuries (PIN Flash 33)

Over 25,600 lives were lost on the road in the European Union in 2016, of those a large proportion were victims of work-related road (WRR) collisions. Even though the exact number is unknown, it is likely that up to 40% of all road deaths are work-related. Part I: Work-related road safety (WRRS) data collection and reporting Gaining a full and detailed picture of WRR collisions in the EU is very challenging due to differing definitions, variety of data sources, a lack of linkages between […]

Position Paper: Revision of 2003/59/EC on the Initial Qualification and Periodic Training of Drivers of Certain Road Vehicles for the Carriage of Goods or Passengers

Position Paper: Revision of 2003/59/EC on the Initial Qualification and Periodic Training of Drivers of Certain Road Vehicles for the Carriage of Goods or Passengers

The European Commission has published new proposals to revise qualification and training rules for lorry and bus drivers. ETSC welcomed the initiative but says the rules should be extended to van drivers and include elements on avoiding distraction. Data from 2014 show that 3,863 people were killed in collisions involving HGVs of more than 3.5 tons and 751 in those involving buses and coaches. But ETSC points out that more die in collisions involving vans, than with lorries (nearly 4,000 in 2012).  Van use […]

Managing Grey Fleet Safety: A Short Guide for Companies Whose Staff Drive Their Own Cars For Work

Managing Grey Fleet Safety: A Short Guide for Companies Whose Staff Drive Their Own Cars For Work

When a driver uses their own vehicle for work, they are still under the responsibility of the employer, and this presents a real challenge for managing associated work related road safety risk.

However once all of the considerations are taken into account this may not be the case. This guide has been produced to help organisations review and improve grey fleet management, […]

Reducing Road Risk at Work through Procurement

Reducing Road Risk at Work through Procurement

Organisations are increasingly aware of the business case for introducing road safety management programmes to reduce work-related road risk. The many benefits include reducing the numbers of preventable injuries, mitigating losses associated with collisions and boosting corporate social responsibility efforts. While efforts to manage road risk within an organisation can be driven by management in close cooperation with employees, it is also possible to exert influence throughout the supply chain.
