"Each year about 3,500 people are killed on our roads and 40,000 are seriously injured. Each one results in terrible pain and suffering. A significant proportion of these deaths and injuries can be connected with work. Accidents involving heavy goods vehicles, buses, company car and van drivers, despatch riders are all examples." (HSE)
