The Health & Safety Working Group was created in October 2017 at one of the Industry Meetings held between the ECG board and OEM representatives. The Working Group (WG) was officially kicked off and its membership defined in March 2018. Since then more than 30 active members from logistics service providers, car manufacturers and trailer manufacturers have worked together to tackle H&S issues in the industry. The initial focus of the WG has been to reduce accidents in road transport operations and especially to address 'falls from height' which tend to be responsible for the most serious incidents.
