Review of Research Methodologies in Investigating Work-Related Driving Behaviour

Somoray, K, Wishart, D, Biggs, H


ARSC conference 2016

EXTENDED ABSTRACT: This paper reviewed research in work-related driving safety with a particular focus on the current methodologies used to investigate driving behaviours in work settings. Results from this review demonstrated that the majority of past research have utilised questionnaires to measure work-related driving behaviours, but an increasing number of research are utilising in-vehicle monitoring systems as an alternative method. Other methodologies include: interviews, observational studies and crash analysis. Strengths and limitations of each methodology will be discussed as well as the practical implication and benefits of implementing both traditional and innovative measures in work-related driving safety research.
