Work-related Road/Vehicle Safety: An Issue For Safety Professionals
Rowland, Bevan D., Wishart, Darren E., & Davey, Jeremy D. (2004) Work-related Road/Vehicle Safety: An Issue For Safety Professionals. SIA News: The Newsletter of the Qld. Division of the Safety Institute of Australia Inc., 2004(3), pp. 2-6.
Research has shown that work-related road/vehicle safety has generally been overlooked by organisations and safety professionals alike, even though the documented consequences of failing to address the issue could be severe. This paper argues that current forms of reporting and recording work-related vehicle crashes/incidents and the strategies aimed at controlling those incidents are ineffective. Organisations looking at improving their work-related road safety performance should adopt a proactive multiple strategy approach to road safety and not the traditional reactive approach.

Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
