European Transport Ministers Discuss Road Safety at Work

28 June 2010

Transport Ministers meeting in Brussels last week discussed work related road safety at their Council Meeting.

As well as declaring work related road safety a priority for action at a national level, Spain has made it one of the priorities of its Presidency of the EU and will include this issue as an Any Other Business point at the Transport Council.

It is estimated that in the EU-15, 39% of fatal work accidents are road traffic accidents.

The recent European Transport Safety Council press release on the growing importance of work-related road safety in the EU can be read here.
