Abstract

The reduction of injuries and deaths sustained from work-related driving is a priority for occupational health. It is widely accepted that for most workers driving is one of the riskiest activities undertaken as part of work. In Great Britain (GB) it is estimated that at least a fifth of road injuries are sustained in a collision in which someone was driving for work at the time. The management of occupational road risk (MORR) is intended as a means of improving work related road safety (WRRS). In GB, from origins in the late 1980s, throughout the 1990s and 2000s, and into the 2010s there has been a plethora of initiatives focused on encouraging the wider uptake of MORR. The ultimate objective of this movement is to see WRRS managed just like any other aspect of safety at work. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) commissioned TRL and UCL to conduct this strategic review of MORR. The intention is that the review serves as a record of progress in MORR since the 1990s, and also as a basis for making recommendations for action to help sustain this progress.
