Comparison of Experience-Based and Evidence-Based Safety Risk Management Features for Heavy Vehicle Transport Operations
Keywords: Heavy Vehicles
The main findings of recent research into important safety management characteristics were compared against risk management factors included in the risk assessment process adopted by a major truck insurer. Independent research into safety management features that distinguish between lower insurance claimers and higher insurance claimers identified 14 characteristics that show clear evidence of efficacy in safety management in trucking operations. When these were compared with the Zurich Risk Engineering grading criteria substantial consistency was found.
