Abstract Germany counts approximately 230,000 occupational accidents due to in-plant transport per year of which 150 are fatal. There are a further approximately 23,000 road accidents, during work of which 200 are fatal. 110,000 commuting accidents were reported in 2007, in which almost 500 workers lost their lives. A campaign for the prevention of in-plant and traffic accidents has therefore been set up by the German regulatory accident insurance institution, including a website where enterprises can find the information needed to develop an action programme.
