2 DRIVING FOR WORK CASUALTIES Killed Seriously Injured Slightly Injured 6,622 6,673 6,150 5,456 5,281 5,197 5,231 5,052 59,879 58,165 53,525 50,080 48,868 47,052 44,819 42,035 All 67,359 65,728 60,423 56,128 54,689 52,808 50,589 47,602 Between 2006 and 2013, 5,241 people were killed, 45,662 seriously injured and over 4000,000 injured in work-related road crashes Table RAS30037 in Reported Road Casualties Great Britain 2006 to 2013, Department for Transport

3 DRIVING FOR WORK CASUALTIES In 2013, there were 47,602 work-related road casualties and 515 work-related road deaths 68% of the casualties were other road users or passengers not at-work drivers or riders: 24,361 were other road users 7,874 were passengers of at-work drivers 15,367 were at-work drivers or riders 80% of the deaths were other road users or passengers: 400 were other road users 25 were passengers of an at-work driver 90 were at-work drivers or riders

4 DRIVING FOR WORK = HIGHER RISK Company car drivers 49% more likely to be in a crash than ordinary drivers, even given their higher mileages Drivers with 80%+ of their mileage work-related 53% more crashes than similar drivers with no work-related mileage Higher blameworthiness ratio in crashes Higher levels of risk-taking behaviour

5 THIS IS WHY... HSE Guidelines, 'Driving at Work', state: "health and safety law applies to on-the-road work activities as to all work activities and the risks should be effectively managed within a health and safety system" This means that employers have a duty to assess, train and supervise staff who drive as part of their job and to manage the conditions under which staff drive for work

6 DRIVING FOR WORK CASUALTIES Road crashes not just due to driver error, but also nature of driving at-work drivers required to do (eg, schedules, time pressures & distractions) and vehicles they drive Employers should take particular care to reduce risks caused by driver tiredness, distraction and time pressures, and to reduce driving as much as possible by: Using remote communications Travelling by plane or train Maximising car sharing to reduce number of journeys Don t train drivers to do unsafe tasks!

7 DRIVER ASSESSMENT & TRAINING Not just driving skills, but also driver attitudes, knowledge and understanding Ensure drivers are aware of their responsibility to passengers and other road users Ensure drivers are aware of vulnerable road users needs Drivers need to know, understand and follow their company s policies Communicate with them regularly Encourage drivers to raise concerns and share experiences

8 KEY ISSUES Journey Planning Fatigue Get the job done Drink Driving Drug Driving Distractions Fitness to Drive Speed Sharing the road with vulnerable road users Vehicle Technology (SatNavs)

9 DRIVER ASSESSMENT & TRAINING Reflect the fact that at work drivers are not all the same Identify which drivers are most at risk & why, so suitable training or other measures can be designed

10 DRIVER ASSESSMENT & TRAINING Use assessment results to identify training needs and inform type and content of training Use assessment results to inform other management changes, such as amending a route or journey schedule

11 NOT JUST ONE OFF OR EVERY FEW YEARS Recruitment Amount & type of driving, accidents and motoring offences Driving Licence, Fit to drive declaration, medical check Induction Company driving policies & procedures, initial assessment and training for vehicle and types of journey, Buddy system, driver handbook, vehicle & route familiarisation, telematics Ongoing Refresher, new issues such as a change in driving style, abilities or attitudes or a change in the driving tasks Higher Risk Mileage, accident (or near miss), penalty points, conviction, complaint, returning to work

12 SUPPORTING POLICIES Authorisation to Drive Manage who can drive. May be a condition of insurance Line Manager Training Importance of driver assessment and training, and their role in making sure properly implemented. How to use the results from assessments and training to prioritise drivers at highest risk, and to make any necessary management changes, such as journey planning, schedules Set right example Reporting Requirements Crashes, including damage-only and significant near misses Penalty points, cautions, summons, convictions for driving offences

13 SUPPORTING POLICIES Accident and Incident Investigation Identify what happened, how & why, and feed lessons learned back into management loop Disciplinary Policy Aim to help drivers rather than to be punitive. But may be necessary to remove an individual from driving duties if the way they drive poses an unacceptable risk to themselves, their colleagues and to the public Review and Evaluate Monitor & evaluate driver assessment and training policies and practices to ensure working effectively. Advice in How to Evaluate Managing Occupational Road Risk: A guide for employers

14 BLACK BOX TECHNOLOGY Accurate analysis of driving behaviour and personalised feedback and advice for drivers and managers Can significantly reduce risky driving behaviours, reduce crash rates and costs. But effects vary Not just plug & play - need to use it pro-actively. Need to view the feedback and use it to inform remedial actions Guidance at
