Wishart, Darren E., Davey, Jeremy D., Freeman, James E., & Rowland, Bevan D. (2009) Identifying influences of driving behaviour : could the Australian work driving setting be unique? In Fifth International Driving Symposium on Human Factors in Driver Assessment, Training and Vehicle Design, 22-25 June 2009, Yellowstone Conference Center, Montana.
Work-related driving safety is an emerging concern for Australian and overseas organisations. An in depth investigation was undertaken into a group of fleet drivers’ attitudes regarding what personal and environment factors have the greatest impact upon driving behaviours. A number of new and unique factors not previously identified were found including: vehicle features, vehicle ownership, road conditions, weather, etc. The major findings of the study are discussed in regards to practical solutions to improve fleet safety.
