Content: The study on behavioural safety motives of professional drivers is now becoming more adaptive by some organizations in Hong Kong and also the rest of the world. The accidents caused by professional drivers and work-related motor vehicles lead to significant impacts to the community, both social emotion and financial loss. In this seminar, Dr. Cheng will share with us his recent study on some behavioural safety motives, including driving behaviour, traffic risk perception and training on risk perception for professional drivers.
