Taxi industry safety and security taskforce: final report

The Taxi Industry Safety and Security Taskforce was formed by the New South Wales (NSW) government to assess the risks faced by taxi drivers, research and review existing safety initiatives, and to develop new strategies. In its work the taskforce has found that through better coordination, cooperation and targeted initiatives; taxi industry safety across NSW can be enhanced. The taskforce sought to articulate an approach for updating the current taxi driver safety and security framework and a range of possible initiatives to ensure safety issues are addressed in an informed, coordinated and comprehensive manner. In July 2007 an interim report was released, detailing the taskforce's findings and presenting a series of recommendations for safety in the taxi industry. Arising from the interim report was the important action of commissioning an industry survey to inform the taskforce as it developed its final report. In order to ensure a strong level of taxi industry engagement, a sample of drivers and operators were surveyed on their views of safety in the industry, the initiatives put forward in the interim report and their impact on the working environment.
