A series of free road safety events are to be held across Scotland in June in a bid to reduce the number of accidents among those who drive for their job.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) will be working with the Scottish Centre for Healthy Working Lives to highlight the importance of occupational road risk management.
They will be running a number of seminars to help Scottish businesses ensure the safety of their employees while they are out and about on the roads.
Willie Wills, RoSPA's road safety manager for Scotland, said that as well as keeping their employees safe businesses can also benefit from reduced car insurance costs by adopting effective road risk management strategies.
RoSPA estimates that around 100 people die each year in Scotland as a result of work-related road accidents, while across the UK as a whole the figure rises to 1,000.
Meanwhile a survey by Carrentals.co.uk found that work responsibilities such as meetings are causing drivers to lose concentration behind the wheel, potentially leading to serious or fatal accidents and more expensive car insurance quotes.
