Abstract [en]

Traffic accidents caused the most accidental deaths at work in Malaysia. Commuting accident increased by 9.29% in 2009 compare to 2008. The Social Security Organisation (SOCSO) reported that the number of deaths due to commuting accident was 760, which is nearly two times more than deaths caused by accidents that happened at the workplace (471 deaths). The aim of this study are to analyse the socio-demographics and socio-economics background of the victim, and to analyse the exposure of drivers involved in traffic accidents during their commute to and from the workplace. In the total sample, the majority of traffic accidents (83%) involved males. The majority of respondents (92.2%) also rode on motorcycles. The male drivers have an average driving experience of about 10.7 years and for females about 8.6 years. The estimation of the travelled distance for the sample from home to the workplace is 0.65 to 131 km. Mean accident occurrence time was 23 minutes whilst mean distance was 11.6 km.
