Know about a road safety issue? Whether it's about fatigue, vehicle or equipment problems, distraction, speed or weather conditions, you can let CIRAS know about road risks at work and we'll pass it on confidentially.

The concern 

A reporter to CIRAS believed that rosters were not taking into account the amount of time that maintenance staff spent driving between sites. They were concerned that this could lead to increased fatigue and potentially a road traffic accident. 

The response – what happened after the CIRAS report?

The company began monitoring times using a combination of trackers on vans and a time sheet system so that managers could intervene if the combined total of travel and work time exceeded 14 hours.
