The primary objective of the research was to obtain baseline data in the road freight transport industry on the knowledge of PCBUs’ obligations in regards to work health & safety (WHS), workers compensation (W/Comp) and injury management (IM).
Research was conducted using a web survey and it gathered feedback on PCBUs’ awareness of their obligations, what actions they take to meet these obligations and systems they had in place to ensure worker safety within their workplace and other worksites.
8,521 insurance policy holders in the road freight transport industry were sent letter invitations containing a generic web link to an online survey. WorkCover arranged the letter and the sample. The survey was conducted online during April and May 2013 and 498 usable responses were obtained, making a response rate of 6%.
