Work-related road safety: good practice cases from around the world.

Murray, W, Dubens, E, Rea, M (Peer reviewed)

General

ACRS conference 2009

All over the world, work-related road safety has grown in importance in recent years as the extent of the problem has emerged, and an increasing number of researchers, practitioners andgovernment agencies have seen its potential for protecting human, physical and financial assets.

Despite this increasing interest in occupational road safety (often called fleet safety), there are few published case studies of successful organisations. The aim of the paper is to start the process of addressing this research gap, by reviewing research and describing three successful case studies from around the world.

As well as the cases studies, the discussion focuses on the DNA (fundamental building blocks) of successful organisations, and the lessons they offer for road safety researchers, policy makers and industry.
