Keywords:Motorcycle safety, Commuting Safety Support, Programme, Road safety training programme, Programme review
Malaysia ranks among the top 20 countries in terms of road accident fatalities, with motorcycle accidents accounting for more than 60% of these fatalities. This is a very serious issue to encounter. Although there are a lot of studies related to motorcyclists, the number of studies in assessing the needs for motorcycle commuting training programme is still scarce in this country. This study is important as it findings could extend previous knowledge on how the industry perceived motorcycle safety riding program. The program consists of four modules which delivered in Phase 1. The modules were Family Safety Reminder, Route Hazard Mapping, Motorcycle Inspection and Commuting Safety Management. The main goal of this study was to review the motorcycle Commuting Safety Support Programme (CSSP) and to determine the needs for the programme among companies’ top management and focal person of CSSP training programme. This study was conducted using a qualitative approach, where face- to-face interview between the researcher and the informant were conducted. Data were thematically analysed, and transcribe and transform into codes. Findings from this study revealed five themes which are i) feedback of the four modules that were delivered in phase 1; ii) appropriateness of time-allocation for each module in Phase 1; iii) experience as PIC of programme; iv) ways to convince management to approve the programme and v) the module that gives the most impact to the participants. This finding may be useful in revising the CSSP. In conclusion, the study highlights the vital input which can be used for further research and improvement of the program modules. Further improvement of the modules should be conducted, and systematic evaluation of the program should be carried out to investigate further on the effectiveness of the program.
