Report of the Work-related Road
Safety Task Group
This is the report of the independent Work-related Road Safety Task Group.
Its focus is on how health and safety risk management principles can be
brought to bear on at-work road risk and the role employers, individuals,
Government agencies and others can play in working together to reduce deaths
and injury on our roads.
The report made a total of eighteen recommendations
The key conclusion was that the Government and the Health and Safety Commission
should take measures to reduce at-work road traffic incidents by applying
existing health and safety law to on-the-road work activities. The Task
Group argued that employers should manage road risk in the same way as they
manage other occupational health and safety risks.
