Driving in traffic is the riskiest thing many people do while at work. Most people are not aware of this. Sales persons, pizza deliverers, plumbers, computer consultants, midwives and many others are at risk of having a road accident whenever they drive for work.
Workplace transport or load handling (the use of a vehicle or other moveable equipment, by an employer, worker, self-employed person or visitor) is one of the main causes of accidents in the workplace. A high proportion of workplace transport accidents, e.g. related to load handling, involve non-drivers, that is people who have no direct control of the vehicle or equipment.
