TitleBest practice fleet safety management and priority actions
AuthorsSmall M, Bailey TJ, Lydon M, Davern T
Year2013
TypeConference Paper
AbstractThis paper reviews relevant literature and publicly available fleet management programs, along with workplace road safety policies and procedures. Discussions were also held with managers of selected companies about their fleet safety achievements. This work identified key vehicle and driver safety interventions from the literature, plus best practice fleet management and workplace road safety policies and priority actions for consideration within fleets. Managers reported progress in organisational acceptance and recognition that road trauma is a social, human, financial, reputation, efficiency and operational risk to an organisation and needs to be given priority at all management levels. The study investigated workplace safety management principles and their application in road safety management. Within standard management processes, companies wishing to reduce their road safety risk should: reassess the need for travel; reorganise work journeys to reduce exposure to risk or use lower risk journey options; invest in the upfront safety quality of vehicles that are being used; and engage their staff and stakeholders about risk management on the road.
