What is it?

The report offers an overview for employers on how to minimise distractions. Specifically it focuses on in-vehicle distractions associated with the use of electronic devices, e.g. mobile phones, smart phones, music players and portable navigation devices (PNDs).

Who is it for?

Employers, safety specialists, and (national and EU) policy makers.

What is the benefit?

Distraction on the roads plays a role in 20-30% of all road collisions. By making employers aware of causes and consequences and by giving recommendations the number of collisions can be diminished.

Getting started

Next to the information on risks related to the specific devices, the report gives sound recommendations per target group (i.e. employer, national policymaker, EU policy maker).
