PRAISE Report 3 - Fitness to Drive.

11 May 2010

The third PRAISE Report is now available.

The report looks into Fitness to Drive in the work-related context. A successful organisation will benefit in a number of ways from workplace health promotion, and it therefore makes sound business sense to ensure that employees are fit to drive.

Driving for work is a demanding task and exposes employees to significant risks since conditions such as work related stress or sleepiness resulting from driving long hours can play a role. The report covers existing legislation, examples of initiatives and case studies, and recommendations to the EU, to EU Member States, and to employers.
