In August 2011, the National Transport Commission (NTC) released a discussion paper titled A Corporate Approach to Transport Safety which explores how the existing corporate commitment to workplace safety can contribute to achieving the National Road Safety Strategy targets.

The paper provides examples of companies which have applied their workplace safety cultures to improve the safety of work-related road use. It seeks to identify actions that are entirely within the control of an individual company or group of companies (in an industry sector or along a supply chain) that would improve road safety and benefit their business.

The purpose of the discussion paper is therefore to stimulate discussion on ways in which corporate initiatives can contribute to improving road safety within the wider community.
