Effectiveness of Fostering Safety Culture in Motor Carriers

This project demonstrated the impact of early, proactive training of new-entrant motor carriers on their safety performance, including crash rate. Products included: analysis of safety performance data from 2005-06 first generation training curriculum; development and application of second-generation training curriculum; recommendations for improved intervention techniques (e.g., web-based, group intervention); and analysis of the safety performance impact of the second-generation curriculum. A pilot test of the curriculum is currently under development. A final report detailing findings from this project is published and available.
