Safe commuting is a central part of occupational safety. The Finnish Road Safety Council influences it by means of communication and by co-operating directly with workplaces.

Road safety is an important part of occupational safety and health

It is a good idea to include safe commuting as part of each workplace’s strategy and operating methods. The selection of practical measures depends on the needs, sector and size of the workplace. The goal is zero accidents in commuting.

To improve safe commuting, the Finnish Road Safety Agency offers versatile operating models, tools and materials.
