The emerging issues for management of occupational road risk in a changing economy
A survey of gig economy drivers, riders and their managers The nature of work is changing with the growth of digital platforms accessible via smartphones giving rise to new independent ways of working. The gig or sharing economy describes this new trend in work. The gig economy involves people who do not get paid a salary but get paid per gig or a ‘piece rate' whereby service providers are linked to service users via an app. Drivers and riders who earn money in this way are often referred as lifestyle workers or flex couriers or workers because they can choose when they work to fit in...
Situation awareness in young novice ambulance drivers: So much more than driving
Background: The intractable problem of young novice driver road crashes, and the critical role of emergency responders in attending road crashes, is well-recognised as is the critical role of situation awareness skills (SAS, ie. an understanding of ‘what is going on’ in a specific situation). Emergency responders may be young novice drivers and young novice ambulance drivers, therefore SAS will be required for safe road use. This project explored the SA demands upon young novice ambulance drivers (‘drivers’) in Queensland, Australia. Method: A synthesis of literature regarding...
Are professional drivers less sleepy than non-professional drivers?
Objective: It is generally believed that professional drivers can manage quite severe fatigue before routine driving performance is affected. In addition, there are results indicating that professional drivers can adapt to prolonged night shifts and may be able to learn to drive without decreased performance under high levels of sleepiness. However, very little research has been conducted to compare professionals and non-professionals when controlling for time driven and time of day. Method: The aim of this study was to use a driving simulator to investigate whether professional drivers are more...
How Employers Can Keep Older Drivers Safe at Work
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of work-related deaths in the United States. Millions of workers, such as long-haul truck drivers, sales representatives, and home health care staff, drive or ride in a motor vehicle as part of their jobs. As our workforce ages, we need to pay special attention to the needs of older drivers in the workplace. The NIOSH Center for Motor Vehicle Safety recently released a new fact sheet that provides employers and workers information on age-related physical and mental changes that may affect older workers' driving, as well as resources and checklists...

Law Enforcement Officer Motor Vehicle Safety
Motor-vehicle crashes are the leading cause of occupational fatality among Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs), yet data on motor-vehicle-related incidents and motor-vehicle operations are scant. Unfortunately, the limited avail­ability of data makes it difficult for agencies to develop and implement evidence-based prevention programs. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) sponsored a statewide survey on officers' thoughts about and experiences with motor-vehicle-related incidents. This statewide survey included a random sample of 60 law enforcement agencies and...
The Business Case for Managing Road Risk at Work
ETSC's latest PRAISE report gives an overview of the business case for employers to invest in a Work-Related Road Risk Management (WRRRM) programme. It finds that the financial and other benefits of such a programme could outweigh the costs of implementation. The other benefits such as increasing efficiency in organisational management and administration are also detailed.

The impacts of multiple rest-break periods on commercial truck driver's crash risk
INTRODUCTION: Driver fatigue has been a major contributing factor to fatal commercial truck crashes, which accounted for about 10% of all fatal motor vehicle crashes that happened between 2009 and 2011. Commercial truck drivers' safety performance can deteriorate easily due to fatigue caused by long driving hours and irregular working schedules. To ensure safety, truck drivers often use off-duty time and short rest breaks during a trip to recover from fatigue. METHOD: This study thoroughly investigates the impacts of off-duty time prior to a trip and short rest breaks on commercial truck safety...

Prévenir le risque routier professionnel
Si les chiffres de la sécurité routière sont en nette amélioration depuis plusieurs années du fait de l'engagement des pouvoirs publics, l'accident de la route reste la première cause de décès au travail. Les entreprises ont du mal à intégrer le risque routier comme relevant du domaine de la prévention professionnelle, surtout lorsque la route n'est pas leur cœur de métier. Le risque d'accident de trajet reste élevé et mal appréhendé par les entreprises. Il fait...
Accidents routiers au travail survenus au Québec de 2000 à 2008
Caractéristiques et classification Les travailleurs indemnisés à la suite d'un accident routier au travail (ART) représentent environ 2 % de tous les travailleurs indemnisés par la Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail du Québec (CSST). Toutefois, les décès liés à un accident routier représentent entre 25 % et 30 % de tous les décès accidentels au travail. Ils représentent la première cause de décès accidentels au travail. Le présent...
Les accidents routiers au travail
Une revue de littérature Dans le monde industrialisé, les accidents de la route comptent pour une part très importante, sinon la plus importante, des décès accidentels survenus au travail. Plusieurs catégories de travailleurs conduisent dans le cadre de leur travail et le fait de circuler sur la route place ces travailleurs dans une situation à risque. Malgré ce constat, relativement peu d'études sont réalisées sur ce sujet afin de connaître les caractéristiques et les facteurs de risque des accidents...
The effect of external non-driving factors, payment type and waiting and queuing on fatigue in long distance trucking
INTRODUCTION : The aim of this study was to explore the effects of external influences on long distance trucking, in particular, incentive-based remuneration systems and the need to wait or queue to load or unload on driver experiences of fatigue. METHODS : Long distance truck drivers (n=475) were recruited at truck rest stops on the major transport corridors within New South Wales, Australia and asked to complete a survey by self-administration or interview. The survey covered demographics, usual working arrangements, details of the last trip and safety outcomes including fatigue experiences....
Assessing sleepiness and sleep disorders in Australian long-distance commercial vehicle drivers
Self-report versus an "at home" monitoring device STUDY OBJECTIVES: As obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with a higher risk of motor vehicle crashes, there is increasing regulatory interest in the identification of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers with this condition. This study aimed to determine the relationship between subjective versus objective assessment of OSA in CMV drivers. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. SETTINGS: Heavy vehicle truck stops located across the road network of 2 large Australian states. PARTICIPANTS: A random sample of long distance commercial vehicle...

Cops and Cars
Law enforcement work remains a dangerous occupation. In 2009, the occupational injury fatality rate for police officers was 4 times higher than the U.S. average [BLS, 2009]. According to a new report by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, line-of-duty deaths have dramatically increased – 40% – from 2009 to 2010 (NLEOMF, 2010). Possible reasons for this significant increase include budget cuts, the expiration of semi-automatic weapon bans, and a diminishing respect for police officers; but these are, at best, speculations. While the media often reports on firearm-related...
PRAISE Report 4 Safer Commuting to Work
At present there is little data covering commuting accidents in the EU Member States and this remains somewhat of a grey area. Some countries do not collect such data, or are only starting to collect it (by including “purpose of journey” information in traffic accident datasets). It is therefore difficult to compare road risk while commuting across the whole EU. However, data for a number of countries are available, and this can be used to demonstrate the importance of this topic. A report from 2009 on occupational road safety including collecting and comparing work related road safety...

Comprendre le risque routier professionnel par l’analyse de l’activité
L'exemple des conducteurs de travaux Cet article présente les résultats d'une recherche portant sur le risque routier professionnel rencontré par des travailleurs dont la conduite n'est pas le métier mais qui se déplacent fréquemment : les conducteurs de travaux de chantiers de travaux publics. En adoptant le point de vue de l'activité, nous montrons que la compréhension et la prévention de ce risque nécessitent de connaître et de comprendre l'activité de travail. En effet, l'activité...
PRAISE Report 3 Fitness to Drive
The report looks into Fitness to Drive in the work-related context. A successful organisation will benefit in a number of ways from workplace health promotion, and it therefore makes sound business sense to ensure that employees are fit to drive. Driving for work is a demanding task and exposes employees to significant risks since conditions such as work related stress or sleepiness resulting from driving long hours can play a role. The report covers existing legislation, examples of initiatives and case studies, and recommendations to the EU, to EU Member States, and to employers. Source : http...
