Good health and safety policies and procedures are important in any workplace, but it is absolutely essential in the transport industry. 

According to the HSE, vehicles continue to be a major cause of serious and fatal injuries at work. Over 5000 incidents involving transport in the workplace occur every year, with around 50 of these incidents resulting in deaths. The main causes of these incidents are people falling off vehicles, or being struck or crushed
by them. Estimates also suggest that up to a third of all road traffic accidents involve someone who was working at the time of the accident.

Employers are legally bound to ensure the health and safety of their employees, contractors and members of the public is not put at risk as a result of the work they carry out. Employees and self-employed contractors are also duty bound to look after both their own health and safety and that of anyone else who might be affected by the work that they do.
