When non-significance maybe significant: lessons learned from a study into the development, implementation and evaluation of a risk assessment tool for fleet settings
Wishart, Darren E., Freeman, James E., Davey, Jeremy D., Wilson, Adrian, & Rowland, Bevan D. (2011) When non-significance maybe significant: lessons learned from a study into the development, implementation and evaluation of a risk assessment tool for fleet settings. In International Conference of Driver Behaviour and Training, 29-30 November 2011, Tapis Rouge, Paris. (Unpublished)
This study reports on the development of a self report assessment tool to increase the efficacy of crash prediction within Australian Fleet settings
Over last 20 years an array of measures have been produced
(Driver anger scale, Driving Skill Inventory, Manchester Driver Behaviour Questionnaire, Driver Attitude Questionnaire, Driver Stress Inventory, Safety Climate Questionnaire)
While these tools are useful, research has demonstrated limited ability to accurately identify individuals most likely to be involved in a crash.
Reasons cited include;
- Crashes are relatively rare
- Other competing factors may influence crash event
- Ongoing questions regarding the validity of self report measures (common method variance etc)
- Lack of contemporary issues relating to fleet driving performance
