||Road traffic collisions while at work are the single largest cause of occupational fatality in the United Kingdom. Work-related road collisions do not comprise a homogenous group but take many forms depending on the various types of vehicle and the purpose of their use. Over 2000 collision cases covering the years 1996-2004 based on police records were analysed, involving company cars, vans, large goods vehicles, buses, taxis and emergency services vehicles. Findings are presented by type of vehicle and degree of responsibility of the drivers.
