Road Safety Network Members Come Together for Webinar

Posted on: Tuesday, 18 July 2017 at 12:00:00 AM

Dr Newnam has made significant contributions at the industry and government levels to reduce the social and financial impact of work-related driving crashes.

Key points from Dr Sharon Newnam's webinar include:

  • Workplace road safety is complex and the research suggests it needs to be better integrated within Occupational Health and Safety and operational activities.
  • The design of organisation policy and practice needs to consider the safety of those who drive a vehicle – remembering, for some the vehicle is their office.

Remuneration encourages safe driver behaviour, but only under conditions of high commitment to safety e.g. investment by senior management in the health and wellbeing of its employees, beyond mandatory requirements.
