Ownership of Safety Responsibilities is associated with Work-Related Road Safety Practices

Banks, Tamara D., Davey, Jeremy D., & Biggs, Herbert C. (2007) Ownership of Safety Responsibilities is associated with Work-Related Road Safety Practices. In IHBI Inspires, 7-8 November 2007, Brisbane.


Interviews and audits of organisational practices were conducted to explore ownership of work-related road safety responsibilities in two organisations. It was identified that organisational practices varied in relation to the position of the person primarily responsible for managing work-related road safety and that greater sharing of safety ownership responsibilities was associated with greater development of road safety practices. This paper suggests that advances in road safety may be achieved through increasing awareness of Workplace Health and Safety responsibilities and including managing road safety in job descriptions.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
