Workplace Transport

Workplace Transport Campaign


Vehicles at work continue to be a major cause of fatal and major injuries in
Northern Ireland. Throughout the last ten years 34 people have lost their
life through workplace transport incidents and 162 people were seriously
injured. By law, pedestrians or vehicles must be able to use a traffic route
without causing danger to the health or safety of people working near it.

A wide variety of transport vehicles may be found within workplaces. Causes of transport incidents may include:

  • being struck by a moving vehicle
  • falling from a moving vehicle
  • being stuck in a vehicle which turns over
