HSE Update: Driving for work (15/01/2021)

For most people, driving will be one of the most dangerous activity they do and we are interested to hear from people who drive for work, or those who employ them.

It is estimated that one third of all road traffic collisions (RTCs) in Britain involve someone driving as part of their job and countless other RTCs involving people travelling to or from their place of work.

HSE and the Department for Transport produced joint guidance in 2014, INDG382: Driving at work, to help dutyholders manage work-related road risk. 

However, in recent years, significant developments in driving technologies and practices have brought the currency of this guidance into question and we want to identify how it can be improved in terms of relevance and accessibility.
