Nearly a quarter of all deaths involving vehicles at work occur while vehicles are reversing
- Many reversing collisions that do not result in injury cause costly damage to vehicles, equipment and premises
- The most effective way of reducing the risks from reversing is to remove the need for it altogether by setting up one-way systems. Drive through loading and unloading is safe practice. Where reversing is unavoidable, organise routes to minimise the need for it. Any single measure is unlikely to be enough to ensure safety - you will probably need a combination of measures.
