Persepsi risiko merupakan faktor penting dalam terbentuknya perilaku keselamatan.  Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk meningkatkan persepsi risiko keselamatan berkendara yang semula masih rendah menjadi lebih baik. Persepsi risiko dinilai berdasarkan paradigma psikometri. Penelitian dilakukan terhadap 150 responden pada bulan Juli  2016 menggunakan desain cross-sectional, data primer berupa kuesioner, dan data pendukung berupa wawancara. Parameter yang digunakan adalah skala Likert angka 1 – 4. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa sebelum dilakukan kegiatan, persepsi responden telah cukup baik (kategori menengah) namun masih perlu adanya peningkatan. Dimensi penerimaan secara sukarela dipersepsikan tinggi dibandingkan dengan 8 dimensi yang lain, berarti bahwa pekerja mau menerima segala risiko yang ada selama berkendara. Setelah dilakukan kegiatan penyuluhan terjadi peningkatan skor pada masing-masing dimensi, perubahan skor tertinggi terdapat pada dimensi pengetahuan. Agar tercipta perilaku berbudaya keselamatan maka diperlukan komitmen yang kuat dari responden terkait keselamatan berkendara, pelatihan dan penyebaran informasi tentang keselamatan yang aplikatif dan partisipasi dari seluruh masyarakat untuk selalu mengutamakan keselamatan.
