Occupational Safety in Transport - Australia

17 January 2012

Queensland University of Technology’s Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety -Queensland (CARRS-Q) is organising an international conference on Occupational Safety in Transport.

The OSIT Conference is a multi-disciplinary event featuring representatives from road and transport safety, aviation and watercraft, ?eets, safety culture and management, construction safety and associated ?elds, which we believe provides an excellent progression from and follow-up to the 2009 NIOSH Global Conference on Occupational Road Safety.

Themes for the OSIT event are planned to cover topics such as:

• Organisational Safety Culture and Management Systems
• Organisational and Industry Transport Risks
• Use of Technologies
• Interventions and Program Strategies and Evaluation
• Data-driven Interventions and Evaluations

Designed to encourage a strong program of both industry and academic presentations, keynote speakers are being drawn from around the globe.

According to Darren Wishart, Chair of the Occupational Safety in Transport Organising Committee the following types of people should attend:

• Fleet managers/coordinators
• Workplace health and safety officers
• Researchers and practitioners
• Policy and process developers
• Engineers
• Vehicle manufacturers
