Employers could work harder to lower work-related road deaths, one organisation has claimed, which may encourage more companies to install new warning signs.

A study from the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has discovered that numerous firms are spending money on road safety strategies without confirming if they yield productive results.

TRL principal road safety researcher Shaun Helman said: "Although there are some promising approaches, companies may be spending a lot of money stabbing in the dark, using a range of interventions that are as yet unproven."

Mr Helman continued by saying that he wants businesses to take an evaluative look at whether their actions are returning results.

Health and safety specialists recently assembled at IOSH's National Safety Symposium to discuss the dangers that may be brought on by cuts to the health and safety sector.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800724093-ADNFCR
