Health and Safety e-conference information

CALL FOR ABSRACTS

Road transport is facing its busiest times today. There has been an exponential increase in the number of road users (pedestrians and vehicles, and sometimes even animals). The same roads are also constantly being repaired and maintained at the same time. Next to these roads are businesses and industrial operations.
 
The busy roads call for attention to transportation safety, compromised by the increase of accidents, pollution, and different social and environmental disruptions.
 
This E-Conference calls for a discussion around “Road traffic safety for the public good”. Students and professionals in safety and transportation. Policy makers and road users are all encouraged to take part.
