What is work-related road safety?

Work-related road safety (or occupational road safety) is aimed at minimising injury risk to people and damage to vehicles and property. Crashes cause a number of direct and hidden costs, such as vehicle repair and replacement, lost productivity and administration time.

Work-related road safety is not only a cost issue but an important occupational health and safety (OH&S) issue. Everyone has obligations to ensure a safe working environment.
