Every year, around 50 people are killed in accidents involving workplace transport, with such accidents also causing more than 1500 major injuries and about 3500 less serious injuries each year.

Accidents involving workplace transport also represent a major cost to businesses; the Health and Safety Executive calculates that a relatively minor accident - for example one which results in a few days off work - is likely to cost an employer around £3500, whilst a major accident can cost around £30,000.

This course will benefit anyone responsible for the management or supervision of people using workplace vehicles.
