overall transportation industry trends
Overall Transportation Industry Trends
  • Regulatory changes need better due diligence and industry / research involvement prior to change
    • Requirements for snow removal - New fall hazards introduced
    • Hours of service rules and application
    • Change management challenges
  • Driver turnover and move-over
  • Poor public perception
  • Fleet management in industries other than transportation SIC code
organizational consistency with trends
Organizational Consistency With Trends
  • Organizations represented were consistent with most of the trends EXCEPT for the harmful environment
most significant contributing causes
Most Significant Contributing Causes
  • Driver distractions
  • Poor risk perception / overconfidence
  • The public isn't playing
  • Different rules for contractors (FAA oversight of 3rd party maintenance, etc.)
  • Inconsistent problem capture and analysis methods
  • Cost margins and operating ratios (service industry – hot loads)

Solutions & Best Practices for Fatality Prevention


areas of future research
Areas of Future Research
  • Methods to accurately measure driver performance
  • Snow removal best practices and practical answers
  • Effective implementation of “Smart-Lane” technology
  • Impact of regulatory changes and recommended industry responses to the changes
  • Impact of smaller companies to overall statistics in transportation
  • Fleet safety awareness research for non-transportation industries
  • Transportation contribution to public fatalities and prevention methods
  • Centralized voluntary reporting (data and criteria) related to drivers (events that are not DOT reportable)
  • Funded forum for major trucking companies to discuss minimizing employee risk and collateral public risk
