National Road Safety Partnership Program (NRSPP) is proud to announce the finalisation of Stages One and Two of the National Fleet Benchmarking Project which was funded by the NRMA/ACT Road Safety Trust.
NRSPP would like to acknowledge the experts who helped deliver the project:
- Darren Wishart – Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety
- James Newton – Transport Safety Collaboration and Project Leader
- Lori Mooren – Transport and Road Safety – UNSW
- Dr Sharon Newnam – Monash University Accident Research Centre
The project was only possible through the willingness of industry attending the workshops and sharing the valuable time and insights in the development of the benchmarking framework.
What is the National Fleet Benchmarking Project?
The national fleet benchmarking project has been proposed to provide a user-friendly online benchmarking resource which will provide organisations with an online analysis and summary of fleet performance, road safety cultural maturity and trends over time. The development of the tool involves five stages, with each stage designed to promote active collaboration between government, research and industry.
Stage One consisted of conducting an international literature review and establishing industry and researcher review panels to support the successful project implementation. A total of 81 studies/reports were included in the final report that was submitted. The literature review identified many challenges that are involved in establishing a successful benchmarking program.
Stage Two consisted of engaging stakeholders through national consultation for the purposes of seeking feedback and input for the development of the benchmarking tool framework, questions and measures. Three national workshops were conducted and attended by industry and members of the public based around a discussion paper developed from the outputs of Stage 1. Feedback from participants was sought on the measures and matrix proposed within the discussion paper.A total of 73 people representing 52 organisations registered to attend the workshops.
NRSPP is now exploring avenues to develop Stage Three of the National Fleet Benchmarking Project which is the actual on-line tool.
