Abstract The transport of goods by road is a sector that is subject to strong constraints, requiring enterprises to rationalize their activities. On-board electronic systems (OESs) are often described as being tools that can efficiently handle these multiple constraints, thereby improving the profitability of the enterprise. The purpose of this guide is to help project managers and persons responsible for occupational safety and health in their approach to the implementation of OES systems. It also warns against the possible hazards resulting from the use of these new technologies and provides several suggestions for their prevention.
