FORS, CLOCS and the Mineral Products Association (MPA) have developed an interactive analysis tool to interrogate the annual GB road safety statistics published by the Department for Transport (DfT). The tool, which is available free of charge to FORS members, can be accessed via the FORS website.
This tool will help users gain a greater understanding of collisions between vulnerable road users (VRUs) and goods vehicles, specifically those used widely in the construction sector.
The interactive analysis tool allows members to interrogate the annual GB road safety statistics published by the DfT between 2014 and 2018 – the data is based on reports made on every road collision attended by the police. The road safety stats are presented graphically through a series of interactive charts and tables showing trends and patterns, and users can filter the data to suit their analysis. Some of the key statistics include collision by causality type, location, vehicle type time of day and the level of casualties relative to construction activity.
