Business to play a key role in ten year plan

13 May 2011

In its startegic framework, published on 11 May The Department for Transport highlights that there is an important role for all businesses where their employees drive for work.

About a quarter to a third of road deaths and injuries are incurred during work time, with some work-related collisions being related to fatigue. The preparation and implementation by employers of policies to make driving safer not only reduces casualties but can cut costs (such as damage to vehicles, employee absence and litigation).

 It highlights the work of our business champions and the growing number of examples of good practice – from the largest companies down to small businesses and includes Driving for Better Business as a case study.

The framework can be downloaded here.
