The Safe System Approach: Managing for Better Road Safety Results

18 October 2016

The Design School has a long association with research, innovation and evaluation in road safety, nationally and internationally. In collaboration with Jeanne Breen Consulting, working in road safety management globally, this Course builds on Loughborough’s previous work in this field. The course will be presented by national and international experts from a range of disciplines. These will be from the Design School at Loughborough, Jeanne Breen Consulting and visiting experts from other countries which are implementing Safe System.

It will take place on the 11th - 12th April 2017 at the Loughborough Design School.

This short course has been designed to engage decision-makers and practitioners who are taking road safety forward at national and local levels. It explains the scientific basis of Safe System, key strategic and design aspects and its alignment with a range of societal objectives. 

Safe System is an evidence-based approach, building upon existing best practice in results-focused road safety management and promoting innovation based on well-established scientific safety principles. Safe System targets all elements of road traffic system design, operation and use, to better accommodate common human error and known human tolerance to injury. The long-term goals, supported by interim quantitative targets, is for roads and traffic which are eventually free from death and serious injury.

The aim of this two-day course is to provide attendees with a broad introduction to Safe System road safety management and a window on implementation experience and guidance in a range of settings. At the end of Day 2 attendees should be able to understand the scope of Safe System in their day-to-day road safety activity and options for building  on their current approaches and practice.
