Organisational models applied to fleet safety
In recent years demand for fleet safety information has grown as government and industry have become increasingly aware of workplace health and safety issues and the impact of fleet safety on business effectiveness. To achieve cost effective road safety interventions, it is crucial to understand which types of organisational structures and management approaches are associated with effective fleet safety practices/policies and low road incident frequencies/costs. This project will assess trends in relation to organisational structures and management approaches and fleet safety outcomes. Based on the findings of this study, several predictions could be drawn regarding the potential cost-benefits of safety interventions as a function of organisational structures and management approaches. This project will make a substantial contribution to the Australian literature in the area of fleet safety research.
