  • Road traffic crashes now represent the 8th leading cause of death globally [1]
  • There is around 1 work-related death every 90 seconds worldwide [2]
  • Over 25,000 lives were lost on EU roads in 2016, with up to 40% of those deaths being work-related [3]
  • About 1 in 3 (31%) fatal crashes and 1 in 4 (26%) serious injury crashes, in Britain, involve someone driving for work [5]
  • The pillars of work-related road safety are road safety laws, health and safety legal compliance, the impact of crashes on staff well-being, the cost of crashes to business and the maintenance of brand reputation
  • It is an offence for a person to cause or permit another person to drive without a legal driving licence [9]
  • It is estimated around 800,000 people drive without legal licences[10]
  • Health and Safety legislation extends to work-related driving, as cars and vans used for business are now legally considered to be an extension of the work place [12]
  • Health and Safety fines have increased significantly since February 2016 [14]
  • People who drive hire cars, or their own private vehicle for work (the grey fleet), should all be included in any fleet risk management programme
  • The hidden costs of a collision could be between 4 and 32 times the ‘bent metal’ costs
  • Implementing a road risk programme can bring significant, tangible and financial business benefits
