PRAISE Preventing Road Accidents and Injuries for the Safety of Employees
Promoting best practice in road safety at work
Using the roads is a necessary part of our working lives. But it’s an ordinary activity that leads to an incredibly high level of injury and death.
ETSC’s PRAISE project addressed the safety aspects of driving at work and driving to work. Its aim was to promote best practice in order to help employers secure high road safety standards for their employees.
It is estimated that in Europe six out of ten work accidents resulting in death are road crashes, including both crashes while driving for work and commuting crashes.Eurogip
- advance the need for work-related Road Safety Management and provide the know-how to employers who must take on that challenge;
- raise the work-related road safety standards of EU Member States and carry out advocacy work at the EU level;
- communicate the message that work-related road safety should include road safety at work (driving on duty) but also road safety to work (commuting).

A key part of the PRAISE programme was a competition that aimed to spur companies throughout the EU to tackle road safety at work. The award was presented annually to employers identified for responsibly taking on the road safety challenge.
Winners received positive recognition of efforts they have made to improve road safety from ETSC, a leading voice in transport safety at the EU level – with members across the continent. Winners were invited to a high-profile event in Brussels, which included networking opportunities with policymakers and other organisations active in the field.Apply Now
