Webinar: Application of Systemic Safety to a Non-Engineering Issue
January 21, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
The National Center for Rural Road Safety (Safety Center) will be hosting a FREE, 1.5 hour online training event.
This Safety Center sponsored webinar will provide a background on the rural safety problem and how the systemic safety approach is used to help address these problems. Some examples of systemic safety applications will be summarized and non-engineering application discussed. An overview of the High Five Rural Traffic Safety Project administered through the Iowa Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau (GTSB), a non-engineering application, will be provided. This project uses 10 years of crash data and seat belt compliance data to determine annually which five rural counties will receive additional funding in order to increase enforcement, engineering, and education related to traffic safety in those counties. This webinar will discuss how the project works, its ongoing outcomes, and how to develop a similar program in your area.
