Safe work-related road use

Reports and information on safe work-related road use.

Road traffic collisions are a leading cause of work-related deaths. Collision data from Ireland across 2014-2020 indicate that 11% of road user fatalities were work-related1.

Safe Work-related Road Use is one of the key intervention areas of Ireland’s Safe System approach. It involves the careful planning and management of work-related journeys to reduce your risk of death and serious injury on our roads. This applies whether you are using publicly or privately owned or leased motor vehicles (including motorcycles), cycling, or walking in the course of your work duties.
