Capturing road safety data from gig economy workers: Development and trial of the Gig economy Reporting of Incidents Tool (GRIT).
This project aims to develop and trial the Gig economy Reporting of Incidents Tool (GRIT): an incident reporting and learning tool specifically for on-demand workers. GRIT will be developed as a mobile app. It intends to provide a useful means to collect data regarding crashes, injuries and near-miss incidents for on-demand workers. The data gained will aid in developing interventions that address the underlying causes of road safety incidents and injuries associated with on-demand work.
Participation and Eligibility Criteria
We will be conducting a series of online focus groups for on-demand workers in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. We are looking to recruit workers that provide on-demand services via the road network and obtain their work from any, but at least one, on-demand digital platform (e.g., Amazon, Menulog, Uber, Uber Eats, Deliveroo, GoPeople).
