April 24, 2017

Washington, D.C. ? In conjunction with World Day for Safety and Health at Work on April 28, Together for Safer Roads (TSR), a coalition of global private sector companies, released the Guidelines for Using Technology to Address Road Safety Challenges rapporto. Il sito segnalare, the second in its Promuovere le migliori pratiche di sicurezza stradale per le aziende e le loro flotte series, outlines how to effectively apply safety technologies, like connected vehicles and infrastructure, autonomous vehicles and features, sensors and telematics, and consumer electronics, to fleet operations in order to pave the way to a golden era of road safety.

Globally, between 25 and 33 percent of road crashes are work-related and 36 percent of occupational deaths are due to crashes.1 As of 2014, there were more than 329 million commercial vehicles on the world?s roads.2 TSR believes that companies have the responsibility for considering the welfare of their employees, as well as the potential dangers business fleets may pose.

?Fleet drivers crashing at a higher rate than privately registered vehicles demand an urgent and collective response from the business community,? said Greg Martin, chief operating officer and executive director of TSR.

The report is a practical guide that provides companies of all sizes a step-by-step approach to understand and execute the types of technologies available to improve safety. TSR member companies, who have implemented and analyzed these technologies, have contributed their expertise to identify best practices to help other companies develop and manage successful transportation programs.

?Technology solutions can help minimize risks and improve road safety. Although, only if they are assessed and monitored before and during implementation, and those employing them are trained on a recurring basis,? Martin said.

La coalizione sta anche onorando la Giornata mondiale per la sicurezza e la salute sul lavoro educando i suoi dipendenti, appaltatori e partner su come essere utenti della strada più sicuri. Le aziende associate stanno partecipando a varie attività, tra cui incontri in municipio, corsi di formazione sulla sicurezza ed eventi comunitari, dove i partecipanti possono pegno to be responsible road users.

?People are a company?s greatest asset, and the private sector must create a culture of safety for them,? Martin said. ?The private sector is known for its innovative spirit, creative thinking, and nimbleness in approaching challenges. Every company has a responsibility to bring this philosophy to road safety.?

This is the third year TSR and its members have recognized World Day for Safety and Health at Work. In 2016, TSR?s efforts engaged more than 1 million people across 45 countries on the importance of road safety.
