SCAM ALERTS: Refund email and Vehicle licence (rego) renewal phishing emails

Tragically, about 25 percent of deaths on our roads involve someone driving for work. 

Fatigue, distraction and vehicle safety are important road safety issues when driving for work, and we know factors such as long working hours can also impact on the safety of workers travelling to and from their workplace. 

Key actions

Road to Zero, the government’s road safety strategy for 2020-2030 has a vision for New Zealand where no one is killed or seriously injured in road crashes.

Work-related road safety is a focus area of Road to Zero. The objective of the work-related road safety focus area is to ensure businesses and other organisations treat road safety as a critical health and safety issue, as this has the potential to significantly reduce harm, both to their workers and to other road users.

Two initial actions will be to:

  • Strengthen commercial transport regulation.
  • Support best practice for work-related road safety.

The outcome of this focus area is to work towards a decrease in the number of deaths and serious injuries involving a person driving for work.

Partners

We’re working collaboratively with the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and WorkSafe on this work programme. We’re also working closely with a number of public and private organisations and businesses.
