Abstract

Preventing accidents is a challenging task, involving various behavioral, vehicular, and environmental factors. To address these factors for a particular manufacturing firm, this study examined its plants and contracted truck carriers to develop a list of validated Best Safety Practices. Using this list, we created an action plan to improve safety procedures, plant-carrier interactions, and safety awareness, while reducing the number of truck accidents.
