Samenvatting Road traffic accidents whilst at work are the single largest cause of occupational fatality in the United Kingdom. Work-related road accidents do not comprise a homogeneous group, but take many forms, encompassing the use of varying types of vehicle used for diverse purposes and including special sub-groups such as those working in, on, or near the highway. A sample of 2111 accident cases was considered, including 1009 in detail, from Midland police forces, involving drivers/workers of all ages and covering the years 1996–2004 inclusive. Each case was summarised on a database including the main objective features (such as time and place) and a summary narrative, a sketch plan and a list of explanatory factors. The summary narrative, in particular, included judgements by the researchers that emphasised the sequence of events leading up to the accident. (Author/publisher)
