What is a workplace transport risk assessment?
According to HSE statistics a total of 147 workers were killed at work in Great Britain in 2018/19. A workplace transport injury is also likely to be fatal, with over a quarter of fatal injuries to workers involving workplace transport.

The course also enables delegates to apply HSG65 principles to workplace transport management, providing an understanding of how to undertake a "suitable and sufficient" workplace transport risk assessment.
The course is designed for managerial and supervisory staff involved in controlling workplace transport issues on behalf of their organisation.
Why conduct a workplace transport risk assessment?
