Young Drivers at Work

2 June 2015

Organisations are increasingly aware of the business case for introducing road safety management programmes to reduce work-related road risk. As explained by Driving for Better Business the many benefits include cutting preventable injuries, mitigating losses associated with collisions and boosting corporate social responsibility efforts.

The focus of a new report from ETSC is an overview of the issues specific to managing young drivers at work. Evidence shows that young people have the highest collision involvement of any road user group.

This excellent report looks into the direct and indirect factors associated with higher collision rates of young drivers at work and makes recommendations on how to assess and mitigate the specific risks associated with this group. It is available to download here.
