What is Safe Working with Workplace Transport?

As we are all too well aware, vehicles can present great dangers when used or encountered on public roads. They can, however, be equally dangerous in a workplace environment - every year about 50 people are killed in accidents involving workplace transport. Accidents of this type also cause more than 1,500 major injuries per year, and about 3,500 injuries that cause people to be off work for more than three days. One of the keys to improving safety in this area is the engagement of all concerned in safe working practices.
