Work related road safety countermeasures in a large fleet (QFleet): An experimental comparison (2002 - 2007)

 

Despite accounting for more than 20% of the road crashes, relatively little research has been conducted on fleet safety in Australia.

This research will develop guidelines for current best practice and design, implement and evaluate several new countermeasures.  More importantly, it will develop a comprehensive model for future design, implementation and evaluation of fleet safety that will extend the frontier of knowledge in crash analysis and prevention.

By working closely with QFleet, current fleet safety thinking will be advanced to reduce the frequency and severity of road crashes thereby reducing road trauma and increasing business effectiveness.

 

This research is supported by an ARC Linkage grant and QFleet.
