||In the road transport sector, as with any other, it is important to pay
attention to working conditions in order to ensure a skilled and motivated workforce. Certain characteristics of the sector make it more difficult to practice risk management than in other sectors. But by taking account of how the sector operates in practice, and the characteristics of drivers themselves and the way they work, risks can be successfully managed. This fact sheet summarizes a report of case studies in managing risks to road transport drivers published by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work. The full report is available here. The cases feature a variety of initiatives and interventions to protect road transport drivers.
