London Mayor Boris Johnson has backed plans for more action on occupational road risk.

Mr Johnson made the statement following figures from the Transport for London (TfL), which found that there were 16 cyclist fatalities in 2011, with nine of these involving heavy goods, while seven involved construction vehicles.

"There is a clear and urgent need to address the spate of serious incidents we have seen involving construction vehicles and cyclists over recent years," Mr Johnson explained.

His comments have been supported by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), which has called for serious work-related road traffic accidents to be RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences) reportable.

IOSH head of policy and public affairs Richard Jones said: "IOSH and its members are keen to contribute to the improvement of the management of occupational road risk, so we welcome Boris Johnson's intervention on this issue.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801538052-ADNFCR
