PRAISE Report 4 Safer Commuting to Work

The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) has launched a new project called
PRAISE "Preventing Road Accidents and Injuries for the Safety of Employees"
co-funded by the EU Commission, over the next three years. As part of its
PRAISE project, ETSC publishes its fourth Thematic Report "Safer Commuting to
Work" which presents how measures taken by employers can mitigate the commuting
risk of their employees and therefore improve road safety.

The report is divided into four sections, including an overview of the scale of
commuting related road deaths within the EU, travel plans and tips on how to
set up safer commuting, an analysis of each different mode, the associated risk
and measures that can be undertaken mostly by employers themselves as well as
local and central government. It examines eventually what can be done by
national governments and the EU to promote employers taking initiatives to
improve safety of their commuting employees.

ETSC is a Brussels-based independent non-profit organisation dedicated to the
reduction of the number and severity of transport crash injuries in Europe.
