Abstract

The objective of this research was to determine the causal relationship factors model for road incidents of the distributing goods drivers in eastern economic corridor of Thailand the questionnaire was designed and verified with a reliability of 0.96. Then, this research conducted the data collection by using probability sampling method and multi – stage random sampling. Cross-sectional analytical research was adopted in the current research. The data were collected from 362 goods drivers. Structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to analyze the gathered data. The results showed that the safety management factor, the accident prevention according to the 3 e principles, and the defensive driving techniques explained the safety behaviors in driving distribution vehicles of employees at 84.50 percent. The safety management factors, the accident prevention according to the 3 E principles, and the defensive driving techniques explained the road incidents of the distributing goods drivers at 83.10 percent. The results of verifying model consistency with empirical data presented that the model was consistent with the empirical data according to the statistical results (Chi-square = 2.784, P-value = 0.001, GFI = 0.915, and RMSEA = 0.070) and can be used as a factor in the planning and development of safety defensive driving management for to prevent road incidents of employees in the workplace in a concrete manner.
