• Drivers driving for work are safer drivers, yet the toll continues…

    Road crashes are the most common cause of work-related fatalities, injuries and absences from work in Australia, yet recent research indicates that individuals injured while driving for work were more likely to engage in safety promoting behaviours.

    The study involving over 38,000 motorists, found that alcohol, fatigue and speed were less likely to be involved in work-related compared to non-work-related crashes. In contrast to past research, the finding suggests a higher motivation to conform to safe driving behaviours while driving for work. What are the implications for this, and why do road crashes remain the primary injury mechanism in the workplace?
