Workplace Transport

The Councils in Northern Ireland  are partnered with HSENI to deliver a Workplace Transport inspection and enforcement initiative.

Vehicles are particularly dangerous in the workplace.  From 2004 to 2012 in Northern Ireland forty people were killed as a result of workplace transport accidents.  A range of sectors are at risk and for a number of reasons.  Contributory factors include:

  • No or inadequate risk assessments

  • Poor workplace design and layout (particularly vehicle pedestrian segregation)

  • Poor systems for detecting and correcting poor behaviour

  • Poor driver training

  • Inadequate vehicle/maintenance
