Road haulage drivers - slips and trips research

The British Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published a new survey on
safety in the road haulage industry. The central aim of this survey sponsored
by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) was to produce a set of baseline data,
based on the opinions of HGV drivers, that described practices within the UK
road haulage sector relating to slip, trip and falls risk factors. The survey
explored risk factors relating to footwear and vehicle safety fittings eg
ladders, steps, handrails and load bed covering. The research employed face-to
face sample survey methodology that allowed reasonable generalisation to the UK
population of HGV drivers.
