DO it the SAFE way, DO it the RIGHT way, DO it EVERYDAY
Over 5,000 accidents involving transport in the workplace are recorded by the HSE each year, with 50 resulting in fatalities. So, with such a high number of accidents being recorded, how can business owners ensure employees and customers driving to work are kept safe?
