Key Safety Risks
For The Transport Sector


As a worker within the Transport Sector, travelling between jobs and sites is a significant part of the job. Increasing fatigue levels when driving will create risks to any individual's safety. Putting controls in place will help prevent the level of risks associated with increased fatigue. 

Long Distance Travel

Like fatigue, long-distance travel is a critical risk associated with the Transport sector. Travelling with livestock, moving large materials or driving in poor conditions are all significant factors to consider when travelling long distances, putting measures in place on when to take breaks and which routes to take are essential to getting the job done efficiently and safely. 

Person‑to‑Vehicle Proximity

For many jobs in the transport sector unloading your vehicle or handing over stock is required and may increase the risk to your safety. By having measures in place to ensure you have the ability to raise an alert within a vehicle but outside the vehicle as well will provide additional safety to those working on and off the vehicle.

Fatigue Management

Managing fatigue is a key element of journey management, especially for long-distance travel. 

Fatigue management focuses on the factors of a job such as duration, level of fatigue prior to the job and the predicted fatigue level that the worker may sit at. 

One of the key parts of the GetHomeSafe solution for the transport sector is a layered approach to welfare monitoring and journey management. The additional journey management features of fatigue management allow for additional safety measures to keep your workers safe and encourage them to take rests or seek alternative fatigue solutions before they continue their travels.
