Driving as part of work is one on the main causes of workplace death both inside the workplace and on the public roads.
Many vehicles are driven for work purposes, for example, lorries, car transporters, vans, tankers, taxis, coaches, buses, emergency service and utilities vehicles, company cars, construction and agricultural machinery, motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles. And many people work on or beside the road, for example, maintenance workers, refuse collectors, postal workers, vehicle breakdown employees, the police and so on. All these workers are exposed to traffic hazards.
