The study examines regulatory authorities' and transport companies' knowledge of, and sources of information about work-related accidents, views on risk factors, and understandings of roles and responsibilities in relation to work-related risk factors and -accidents in three transport sectors. The main finding of the present study is that the road sector seems to perform poorer than the maritime sector and Inland Helicopter Operations on these three aspects of accident prevention. As a consequence, respondents from the road sector rate their own efforts to prevent work-related accidents as lower than respondents from the other sectors. The study concludes with suggestions on how the road sector can improve on these three aspects of risk prevention by learning from the other two sectors.
