Fleet safety : risk reduction for work related vehicle use
Wishart, Darren E., Rowland, Bevan D., Freeman, James E., & Davey, Jeremy D. (2011) Fleet safety : risk reduction for work related vehicle use. In Proceedings of 9th Industrial and Organisational Psychology Conference, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Qld.
Research has demonstrated that driving a vehicle for work is potentially one of the most dangerous workplace activities. Although organisations are required to meet legislative obligations under workplace health and safety in relation to work related vehicle use, organisations are often reluctant to acknowledge and address the risks associated with the vehicle as a workplace. Recent research undertaken investigating the challenges associated with driver and organisational aspects of fleet safety are discussed. This paper provides a risk management framework to assist organisations to meet legislative requirements and reduce the risk associated with vehicle use in the workplace. In addition the paper argues that organisations need to develop and maintain a positive fleet safety culture to proactively mitigate risk in an effort to reduce the frequency and severity of vehicle related incidents within the workplace.
