Sharing the Road with Vulnerable Road Users

At a glance

  • The number of cyclists, users of scooter/e-scooters, etc using the road is increasing, which is leading to a higher number being involved in collisions
  • It is important to have a robust work-related road risk management programme in place to help increase awareness of, and minimise, risk
  • This Risk Insight sets out to give you some ideas about what you can do to help prevent this type of collision occurring.

The number of cyclists, users of scooter/e-scooters, etc using the road is increasing, which is leading to a higher number being involved in collisions.  Given the inherent vulnerability of these road users, it is important to look at how to minimise the risk of being involved in a collision with a cyclist, especially for those organisations operating larger vehicles.

In our latest Risk Insight we explain the scale of the problem, the risks that both organisations and other road users should be aware of, and how to minimise those risks.
