PRAISE Report Managing Speed

9 January 2012

 A new report titled: Driving for Work Managing Speed is published as part of the ETSC PRAISE project, Preventing Road Accidents and Injuries for the Safety of Employees.

The 8th Thematic Report aims to offer employers insight into managing speed. Speeding is the main cause of road traffic collisions, deaths and serious injury.

The report examines the impact that speeding can have and presents levels of compliance with speed limits for different road user types. It focuses on management issues covering topics from journey planning to payment schemes with advice on how such practices can help to manage speeding in the work context. The Thematic Report also looks at what employers can do from risk assessment of potential speeders and identification of training - including eco driving synergies. The final part looks specifically at different speed management technologies which can also be a useful additional tool in managing speed. A policy mix is needed to effectively tackle speeding.

A Fact Sheet complements the Report and features an ETSC interview with Claire O Brian, Health and Safety Officer at KTL. KTL operates in the telecom, renewable, transmission and power sectors within Ireland. Their efforts in improving work-related road safety were recently recognised as they were awarded with the 2011 PRAISE Award in the SME category. The fact sheet looks specifically at the approach of KTL to road safety at work and managing speed.
