||Around 800 persons are killed each year in France in commuting or work-related road accidents, making them the prime cause of occupational fatalities. When not fatal, these accidents are often more serious than accidents that occur within the enterprise. Even though these accidents occur off premises, it remains possible for enterprises to contain these hazards on the condition that they be addressed like other occupational hazards. This guide presents a global approach for the prevention of road hazards consisting of the following six steps: ensure the commitment of all parties; analyse the causes; develop an action plan; implement the actions; evaluate the actions; ensure sustainability of the actions by integrating the prevention plan into the daily operations of the enterprise.
