Resumen Persons being hit or run over by workplace vehicles ("struck by" incidents) resulted in 41% of all workplace transport (WPT) incidents in 2004/05 in the United Kingdom. The Health and Safety Executive "struck by" initiative was part of a two-year workplace transport project running from 2006 to 2008, aimed at reducing the number of incidents. The "struck by" initiative consisted of a targeted audit, that involved reviewing transport activities undertaken in the manufacturing sector and parts of the service industries (such as waste disposal). Several large companies were targeted to take part in an audit where their policies and procedures for controlling all workplace transport risks were reviewed against the precautions that were actually observed on site by a HSE inspector. A structured questionnaire was produced to apply this audit technique. The Health and Safety Laboratory then carried out tracking research with ten of those companies that had been visited as part of the initiative, to provide an assessment of the effectiveness of the audits and the actions they had taken since, or as a result of, this intervention. This work is described in this report.
