Evaluating and improving fleet safety in Australia
This project has reviewed developments in fleet and work-related road safety in Australia, particularly the following areas. -The extent of the problem. -Examples of best practice. -Mechanisms for evaluation. -Theoretical paradigms and future directions. From this, the report achieves the following aims. 1. Identifies a range of societal, business, legal, and cost reasons to focus on fleet safety at the macro and micro levels. 2. Describes a wide range of government, insurer, and occupational health and safety (OHS)-led case studies. 3. Develops an approach to fleet safety evaluation based on a range of proactive and reactive, or lead and lag key performance indicators (KPIs) on crash rates, costs, and qualitative process issues. 4. Identifies an apparent lack of fleet safety theory, and then describes several more general safety theories and frameworks, including the Surveillance Model, the Haddon Matrix and Organisational Culture-based approaches. 5. Synthesises the above to develop a best practice process model for fleet safety and recommend future work.
