Improving work-related road safety in New Zealand : a research report

Murray, Will (2007) Improving work-related road safety in New Zealand : a research report.


Work-related road safety remains a significant risk faced by New Zealand employers and employees. There are organisational, business, legal and cost implications. The AA Driver Education Foundation in New Zealand, and several government and industry agencies, invited Dr Will Murray to run a series of risk management workshops on work-related road safety during October 2005, to identify how to improve occupational road safety in New Zealand. The workshops were hosted in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Representatives from industry and government attended. The workshops focused on why work-related road safety in New Zealand is important for both government and industry. This report focuses on several areas: x100078 The extent of the work-related road safety problem in New Zealand x100078 The main contents of the workshops, including application of the WIPE, Haddon Matrix and PROACTIVE models at the organisational level x100078 Participant pledges which form a list of useful ideas for audit and improvement x100078 Government-level opportunities and initiatives in New Zealand x100078 Recommendations for improving occupational road safety. This report provides a comprehensive review of, and guidance for the development of workrelated road safety in New Zealand, based on the outcome of Dr Murray's research. It is designed to assist in the development of fleet safety policy for government and industry.
