Webinar details

To improve driving behaviour, it is necessary to look beyond individuals’ compliance with safety procedures and at the influence of leadership practices. In this presentation, Dr Sharon Newnam will talk about a research program in workplace road safety that explores the leadership practices that both support and constrain safe driving behaviour and interventions designed to mitigate driving risk.

Dr Sharon Newnam is an organisational psychologist with the Monash University Accident Research and has conducted theoretical and applied research in workplace road safety for the past 12 years. Her research focuses on understanding a range of factors influencing unsafe driving behaviour, from the individual characteristics of drivers to the safety practices of management and beyond. Dr Newnam has made significant contributions at the industry and government levels to reduce the social and financial impact of work-related driving crashes.

Morning tea will be provided, please RSVP for catering purposes and to provide details of any special dietary requirements.
