This research aims to develop and promote the application of knowledge, tools and practical expertise, in order to analyse and improve the integration of safety and risk management in transport organisations and systems.
The research will consider the significance of human, social, organisational, cultural, economic and technical factors in the full integration of safety into transport operations, departments, organisations, project collaboration, in supervision and in whole transport systems. It is recognised that safety management must be considered alongside the need to manage risks associated with security, health and environment.
Emphasis is placed on a user-centred research, and the development of results that can be applied in practice. In this way the research will lead to real improvements in transport safety.
