PhD Research: Modelling company financial influences on heavy vehicle safety outcomes

While the number of crashes involving heavy vehicles has been decreasing in Australia, the current number of fatalities of both industry members and the public is still significant. Researchers have suggested that the financial performance of a logistics and transport company is likely to have a major contribution to its safety performance. This suggestion has not yet been sufficiently tested. The purpose of this research project is to evaluate how Australian logistics and transport companies’ financial performance affects their safety performance and some factors that are likely to influence this relationship.
