Using a conceptual framework to investigate the factors influencing safety performance in a work vehicle

Limited research has investigated the factors determining driving behaviour in the work-related driving setting. In a sample of 385 work-related drivers, this study applies a framework for systematically assessing drivers' perceptions of safety, integrating this framework with individual attributes, and using the combined set of variables to predict crashes in a work vehicle. The results revealed that motivation to drive a vehicle safely, but not safety knowledge influenced self-reported crashes. Safety motivation also mediated the link between self-efficacy and attitudes towards traffic safety and crashes in a work vehicle. The results of this study have provided a unique contribution to the safety and road safety literature by allowing for the systematic assessment of different types of employee perceptions and their relationship to crash involvement.
