This report describes a study to assess whether the workplace transport 'Route Map' is an effective tool to help users manage workplace transport risks. The Health and Safety Executive wanted to assess whether the Route Map had fulfilled the needs of stakeholders as originally expressed in the Route Map public consultation and whether or not it currently provides a useful resource for industry.
Telephone interviews with a representative sample of the Route Map users were conducted and the findings revealed that the original consultees' expectations had been adequately met. Furthermore, users broadly found the tool to be useful, with results showing that the tool has the potential to enhance attitudes and act as a trigger for positive change in the management of workplace transport risk.
Recommendations include better marketing of the Route Map across industry, as well as various adjustments to enhance the user's experience of using the tool.
This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Its contents, including any opinions and/or conclusions expressed, are those of the authors alone and do not necessarily reflect HSE policy.
