Safe system for universities: linking graduate knowledge with industry best-practice
Keywords: Education – general and other
Submission Date: 2019
Safe System represents long-established best-practice in road safety internationally, in Australia and in New Zealand. However, there has been limited success in implementing Safe System policy into practice. While Safe System theory is taught at some Australian universities, there are currently no consistent means of formal education before professionals enter the workforce, leading to a discrepancy between graduate engineer knowledge and industry best-practice. The Safe System for Universities (SS4U) project provides a means for consistent education of Safe System theory at a tertiary level. SS4U is designed for self-learning and a curriculum and material to teach Safe System within existing courses.
