Moving Goods Safely: an Evaluation of Success

The HSE commissioned IES to evaluate the impact of one of its projects of targeted inspections called ‘Moving Goods Safely 3’ (MGS3). The MGS3 project was a ‘supply chain initiative’ aimed at reducing injury and ill-health arising from the movement of goods in the logistics, road haulage and goods delivery sectors. It has been extended to warehousing, retail and wholesale distribution, and home delivery. The evaluation used both quantitative and qualitative research methods to assess impact of this intervention and inform the HSE to what extent the project has achieved its goals.
