  1. 1. Safety at Rail-Road Level Crossings

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Mohammad Shahriari; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1993]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Industrial engineering and economy; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; rail road crossings; safety; traffic safety; driver behaviour; risk analysis;

    Abstract : Safety related to traffic at rail/road level crossings has long been a major issue for rail operators all over the world. Eliminating these level crossings entirely would be a desirable solution. However converting them into separate types is very expensive and not reasonable in many cases, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Traffic Safety Dimensions and the Power Model to Describe the Effect of Speed on Safety

    University dissertation from Traffic Engineering

    Author : Göran Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; consequence; risk; dimension; accident rate; injury rqte; speed; speed limit; cross-sectionel; Road transport technology; Safety technology; Vägtransportteknik; Säkerhetsteknik; accidents; Traffic safety; exposure;

    Abstract : Traffic safety work needs different methods and tools in order to choose and evsaluate traffic safety measures. The thesis contributes to this problem by presenting and visualizing a method which describes the traffic safety situation in several dimensions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Safety Culture in Sea and Aviation Transport

    University dissertation from Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology, Department of Design Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Åsa Ek; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; air traffic control; organizational climate; safety culture; passenger shipping; airport ground handling; Social sciences; Samhällsvetenskaper; Development psychology; Utvecklingspsykologi; Applied and experimental psychology; Tillämpad och experimentell psykologi; Technological sciences; Teknik; Säkerhetsteknik; Safety technology;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis investigates sea and aviation transport safety culture, with a focus on perceptions and attitudes. A safety culture reflects the attitudes, beliefs, perceptions, and values that individuals share in relation to safety. READ MORE

  4. 4. Learning for safety in health care and air traffic control

    University dissertation from Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology, Department of Design Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Sven Ternov; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accident models; Risk management; complex systems; health care; air traffic control; MTO analysis; DEB-analysis; proactive risk analysis.;

    Abstract : Introduction Risk management in enterprises, organisations and companies has had a long and complicated history. During the eighties, and at least during the beginning of the nineties, the notion concerning risk management was that if an accident happened in an otherwise perfect system it was due to the human operator in some way being the cause of the error.

  5. 5. Indicators for traffic safety assessment and prediction and their application in micro-simulation modelling a study of urban and suburban intersections

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jeffery Archer; KTH.; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Social sciences; Traffic safety; proximal safety indicators; micro-simulation; safety analysis; Samhällsvetenskap; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In order to achieve sustainable long-term transport infrastructure development, there is a growing need for fast, reliable and effective methods to evaluate and predict the impact of traffic safety measures. Recognising this need, and the need for an active traffic safety approach, this thesis focuses on traffic safety assessment and prediction based on the use of safety indicators that measure the spatial and/or temporal proximity of safety critical events.
