Effects of Decreased Response Effort and Task Clarification on Proper Tire Pressure

Giacoma A Venditti, Byron Wine

Abstract


Maintaining proper tire pressure can decrease fuel costs and increase the longevity of tires. The current study examined the effects of decreasing response effort and receiving task clarification on appropriate tire pressure with 22 participants across 3 work groups. Treatment consisted of receiving tire pressure gauges, task clarification about appropriate tire pressure, and weekly opportunities at their site for participants to fill up tires. Results suggest that the treatment package was effective in increasing tire pressure for most participants.
