Influence of road safety on taxi organisational economic stability : a need for proactive change
Rowland, Bevan D., Davey, Jeremy D., Wishart, Darren E., & Freeman, James E. (2008) Influence of road safety on taxi organisational economic stability : a need for proactive change. In 31st Australasian Transport Research Forum, 30 September - 3 October 2008, Gold Coast.
Fleet and work-related road safety is an emerging issue for organisations in Australia and overseas. Research conducted in Australia reveal that road crashes are the most common cause of work-related fatalities, injuries and absences from work (Haworth et al., 2000), with the average time lost being greater than any other workplace claim (Stewart-Bogle, 1999; WA, 2003). In recent years changes in industry/employer accountability, business processes, Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), Chain of Responsibility (COR), Workers Compensation legislation, insurance and third party coverage, and a generally more litigious environment require industry to develop better benchmarking along with more comprehensive programs to improve fleet safety (Wishart & Davey, 2004).
