Road accidents are now the most common form of work-related death, injury and absence from work in Australia. Considering its social and financial impact, interest has grown in the occupational health and safety (OHS) practices supporting safety for employees engaged in work-related driving. In this paper we will be utilising multilevel analysis to identify key organizational and individual factors that influence attitudes towards driving a work vehicle. The study will be involving work-related drivers, fleet coordinators and senior level management within the Queensland public sector. The framework will not only integrate driver safety within the organisational safety management literature, but it will provide a practical guide to the management of work-related drivers within the broader OHS context.
