IOSH Research shows little evidence of effective driving for work policies.

7 September 2011

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is calling for companies to do more at the recent launch of  ‘Research It’  prepared by TRL which revealed that many companies are spending money on road safety strategies, with little confirmation on whether they actually produce results.

Dr Sean Helman  who, with support from Driving for Better Business, conducted the review of the evidence showed that some of the promising approaches included fitting in-vehicle data recorders, incentives for safer driving, group discussions around safer driving, and training giving drivers an insight into their limitations - rather than training on vehicle control skills. And he is encouraging UK businesses and fleets to do more research into the methods that show signs of success.


Dr Helman will be our guest speaker at the next Business Round Table on 19 October – book your place here.
