About this e-guide

e-guide

Work-related vehicle risks account for 29 % of all fatal occupational accidents. However, good practices to avoid and reduce these risks have already been implemented within the member states in the EU. Sharing them can help employers and workers to improve vehicle-related safety.

With this interactive e-guide many good practices are provided as well as an overview of relevant regulations and information in three key aspects of vehicle risks:

  • safe driving for work 
  • workplace transport safety 
  • working on or near a road.

This one–stop shop website has been developed for a wide range of users including drivers, their employers and safety experts .

This e-guide is hosted by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work while the editorial content is maintained by DG EMPL.
