Safety in heavy vehicle Industry: a Collaborative Approach
The proposed population-based study will determine what role drivers, employer/company and vehicle characteristics play in heavy vehicle crashes. By comparing cases (heavy vehicle crashes) with controls (no involvement in a crash) the study will identify cost-effective strategies to be implemented to improve safety within the heavy vehicle industry. The study includes all heavy vehicles currently in operation in New South Wales (NSW) and Queensland (QLD) and will be undertaken over a 3-year period.
