This chapter takes a broader perspective, locating the discussions around health and safety within the context of risk management, and drawing on the concepts of uncertainty and safety culture. Contemporaneous research paradigms reinforce the expansion of current perspectives on organizational health and safety issues are discussed. These relate to research papers reviewed in relation to policy impacts, risk communication, conceptualizing and measuring risk, behavioral aspects of risk, supply chain risk management, and transport risk. While a wide variety of risk‐related behaviors, either explicitly or implicitly, characterized many papers, various types of risk behaviors were a prime focus for a few contributions. The chapter notes that transportation is a key area in relation to risk management, and risk‐related problems (e.g., fatigue, shift work, regulation) can be common across different forms of transportation. It also addresses current and future challenges for risk management.
