||The purpose of this study was to provide a quantitative and comparative assessment of road risks associated with road transport and occupational driving. The approach consisted in retrieving historical series of data and developing detailed models enabling the data to be expressed in events per hour and rates of injuries and fatalities per millions of hours spent on the road. It was thus possible to directly compare occupational and road transport data showing that in both sectors, the introduction of new stringent accident prevention regulations have lead to a considerable reduction in accident frequencies and severity. The risks in the road transport sector remain higher than those in occupational driving, suggesting that one should invest proportionately more on prevention in the former than in the latter.
