Courier and postal delivery workers are among the high-risk group on Malaysian roads due to their higher on-road exposure. The past decade has seen an increasing trend in number of road crashes involving courier and postal delivery workers. The fact that majority of these workers use a motorcycle for delivery purposes compounds the risk of crash involvement. This study aimed to determine types of hazards facing courier riders on the road by recording the riding scenarios on their actual delivery route. Researchers used a digital camera and a hands-free camera harness to hold the camera at the chest level to record the riding scenarios. This study has found that road users including the participants themselves were the most dangerous category of hazards facing courier riders on their delivery route. Considering both road user and non-road user related hazards, the five most prevalent categories of hazards were attributed to other motorists, participants’ riding behaviours, behaviours of pedestrians or cyclists, road surface issues and obstruction of view. The findings also show that encroachment of participants’ riding path, participants’ unsafe lane filtering and jaywalking pedestrians are the most frequent cause of critical incidents that resulted in near misses. The classification of hazards and risk assessment presented in this study can be beneficial for operation management and rider training consideration.
