  • Cycling, Health and Safety - ITF-OECD Joint Transport Research Centre
    cycling amidst concerns for safety shows that the key to delivering overall benefits from cycling is creating a safe system through government policy and city action Among the recommendations for policy makers is the moderation of some urban road speeds to 30km h or less and the use of separated cycling infrastructure to increase the number of new cyclists hence reaping the greatest health benefits through increased physical activity including reducing risks linked to cardiovascular disease obesity and Type 2 diabetes Browse a free copy online Go to full publication at the OECD bookshop Objective of the Working Group on Cycling Safety The aim of the Cycling Safety Working Group is to provide an opportunity for the intensive exchange of international experience on risk analysis and the design of cost effective safety interventions It is intended to provide guidelines for improving cycling safety based on review of the best data and analysis available and case studies of policies in member countries With the help of national experts risk exposure and crash data will be collected and member country policy frameworks and instruments for improving cycling safety will be reviewed The study will also explore the potential for implementation of innovative

  • ITF-KOTI Joint Seminar on Cycling Safety
    alternative low carbon transport means for short distance urban trips However a major impediment to large scale bicycle use is the serious concern over bicycle safety in an urban context The aim of this seminar was to provide an opportunity for intensive exchange of international experience on risk analysis and the design of cost effective safety interventions It was also intended to provide guidelines for improving cycling safety based on review of the best data and analysis available and case studies of policies in member countries The output of this seminar will be channelled into the next 2011 Leipzig Forum whose main theme is Transport for Society as an input Programme Opening Session Cycling Safety and Promoting Cycling Moral questions facts figures trends and recommendations Guest Lecture Bernhard ENSINK Secretary General of European Cyclists Federation Session 1 Trends and Statistics for Cycling Safety in OECD Countries Korea Bicycle Transportation Trends and Safety Hee Cheol SHIN KOTI Accident investigation of hot sections involving cyclist and its recommendations Byongho CHOE and Hyunjin KIM Korea Transportation Safety Authority Session 2 Policies and Administrative Frameworks for Cycling Safety Bicycle Safety Infrastructural Measures Anders GAARDBO Danish Road Directorate Korea s Policy Review of Cycling Safety

  • ITF-OECD Joint Transport Research Centre - Assessment of the Effectiveness of Road Safety Measures
    studies and findings on crash modification functions CMF from one country be routinely applied in other countries If so what do the government agencies in OECD and ITF Member countries need to know and do to make assessments of road safety measures systematically transferable The development of reliable estimates of crash modification functions is costly and time consuming thus placing a burden on countries to develop full sets of measures independently of other countries The proposed project would facilitate international collaboration to address this common need and to stimulate greater efficiency in the development of reliable safety effectiveness estimates and their dissemination The objectives are to Evaluate opportunities for and obstacles to international collaboration including the transferability of and access to the results of assessment of effectiveness Develop a theoretical basis for assessing countermeasure effectiveness Develop a framework for assessing the confidence that can be placed on crash reduction estimates based on the quality of individual studies and the consistency of their conclusions Develop methods for applying this theoretical basis to crash patterns or traffic behaviour patterns in different countries to facilitate transferability Generate recommendations and an action plan to improve and harmonise research methods and reporting standards and thereby

  • Pedestrian Safety, Urban Space and Health (PUSH)
    pedestrians Walking has in many cases been neglected in the development of transport systems Improving the pedestrians environment can contribute significantly to meeting the challenges of climate change air pollution and health The objectives of this project were to provide guidance to policy makers to promote walking in urban areas It is based on an analysis of pedestrians needs as well as safety mobility and health data The project focused in particular on the following areas urban planning traffic regulations mobility policy and planning speed moderation urban space and infrastructure design and education and communication Participating Countries The Working Group was chaired by Mr Thanos VLASTOS University of Athens Greece The following countries nominated an expert to the working group Austria Belgium Canada Czech Republic Denmark Finland France Germany Greece Hungary Italy Latvia Netherlands New Zealand Norway Poland Spain Ukraine United Kingdom and the United States Output The final report of the project Pedestrian Safety Urban Space and Health was released in September 2012 It presents evidence on the important place of walking in transport policies and provides guidelines for developing a safe environment conducive to walking Pedestrian Safety Urban Space and Health Download from OECD bookshop Browse a free

  • OECD/ITF JTRC - Towards Zero: Ambitious Road Safety Targets
    is the result of a three year co operative effort by an international group of safety experts representing 22 countries as well as the World Bank the World Health Organisation and the FIA Foundation The Working Group was chaired by Mr Eric Howard Australia Most countries have achieved significant improvements in road safety over many years but many are finding further improvements progressively more difficult to achieve At the same time there is still quite a disparity in overall road safety performance in member countries and some countries have seen their road safety situation worsen in recent years Ambitious targets have been set either by individual countries or at international level to reduce the number of road casualties However few countries are on track to achieve their targets The report takes stock of recent developments and initiatives in OECD and International Transport Forum member countries to meet increasingly ambitious road safety targets It highlights the institutional management changes required in many countries to implement effective interventions through a strong focus on results and builds the economic case for road safety investment Publication Summary Document Related information High Level Seminar on Road Safety Paris 25 26 September 2008 Achieving Ambitious Targets
