Preventing Road Accidents and Injuries for the Safety of Employees
Wednesday 19 October 2016, 10:00 -15:00, Brussels
The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) is organising the 6th Annual European PRAISE Conference on work-related road safety.
Using the roads is a necessary part of our working lives. But it’s an ordinary activity that leads to an incredibly high level of injury and death. It is estimated that in Europe six out of ten work accidents resulting in death are road collisions, including both crashes while driving for work and commuting crashes (Eurogip). Also, according to the European Commission, road traffic collisions account for nearly 40% of incidents at work resulting in death. The PRAISE project addresses the safety aspects of driving at work and driving to work.
The conference brings together fleet safety managers, EU institutions, government representatives, and road safety experts to discuss the latest developments and priorities in work related road safety. The winners of the ETSC PRAISE awards 2016 will also be announced.
The program includes contributions from leading occupational health and safety experts and will feature presentations of ETSC’s new reports: ‘Managing Grey Fleet Safety’ and ‘Making Taxis Safer’.
