Vehicles as workplaces - a new framework for a critical road safety management issue
The paper outlines the similarities in policy and differences in application between the management of road traffic safety (RTS) and of work health and safety (WHS). The application of WHS principles to RTS is discussed and used to develop a new framework for considering road traffic system risks and countermeasures. The development of WHS guidance regarding the use of vehicles in road traffic, based on this framework, is described.
