    NZTA  Road Safety Fellowship NZTA Road Safety Fellowship Presentation Transcript

    • NZ Transport Agency and CORE EDUCATIONinvite applications for a fellowship in RoadSafety Education.This slide show provides further guidanceto applicants. 1
    • The Road Safety Fellowship is to support the Whole SchoolApproach to Road Safety Education in NZ Secondary Schools The advertisements for the applications are in the NZ Education Gazette 3 October 2011 25 October 2011 Applications close with CORE EDUCATION on 5 pm 31 0ctober 2011
    • About Safe Systems in schools within The WholeSchool ApproachAims of our schools programme using Safe Systems To implement evidence-based road safety education which embraces the Safe System. The NZTA road safety resources at www.education.nzta.govt.nz are centred within the NZ Curriculum and provide a conceptual approach for teachers on how a teaching an idea or concept, which includes road safety education, may be linked to other important learning outcomes.Seehttp://www.slideshare.net/feetfirst/safe-system-from-nzta- for-schoolshttp://www.nzta.govt.nz/resources/safe-system/index.html
    • NZTA is committed to working in schools through SDERA www.det.wa.edu.au/sdera/detcms/navigation/road-safety/getting-it-together/The whole-school approach:Using curriculum, ethos and organisation and partnerships toaccomplish the outcome - Safer Journeys for Children• Currently NZTA is developing a Year 9 -13 collection (45 intotal which will begin to be available to schools February 2012)•The collection will embed the Safe System intoa range of curriculum areas•Alongside the curriculum materials their will be draft schoolpolicies about Road Safety for secondary schools•2012 there will be curriculum lead competitions with a focuson Road Safety•Along side the curriculum work are the websiteswww.practice.co.nz NZ Year 1-8 schools •There are 60 Year 1-8 (ages 5 -13 years) ‘resources’ spanning allwww.safeteendriver.co.nz curriculum areas and provided free to teachers through the web •Resources are in the form of videos /slideshare and news items •As well as downloadable fully editable teachers plans www.education.nzta.govt.nz/curriculum/whole-school-approach
    • The Safer Journeys Safe System Vision More about the safe road system increasingly free of death and serious injury 5
    • Why we need a different approachOur current road transport system is not as safe asit could be.International research suggests that even if all road users complied with road rules, fatalities would only fall by around 50% and injuries by 30%.If everybody obeyed the road rules, New Zealand wouldstill have many deaths and serious injuries on the roadeach year. 6
    • Compliance isn’t enoughTraditional approach:Target driver non compliance Does not address crashes caused by simple errors Targeting the driver doesn’t protect people when crashes occur Even when the driver is at fault, death is too high a price to pay 7
    • Why the safe system approach is betterSafe system approach - We aim to preventStrengthen entire system serious injury by taking human fallibility and vulnerability into account A forgiving system will reduce serious injury when a crash occurs World best practice 8
    • Four Safe System principles: 9
    • Principle 1 - Human fallibility1. People make mistakes and crashes are inevitable No one performs perfectly 100% of the time No one should pay for a mistake with their life or limb 10
    • Principle 2 - Human vulnerability 2. The human body has a limited ability to withstand crash forces Error may cause crashes, but injury or death is not an inevitable result. What happens depends on speed at the time of crash and what protection is providedEven if speed doesn’t cause the crash, it affects crash severityIt’s all a matter of physics: ke = ½mv2 11
    • Principle 3 - Shared responsibility 3. System designers and system users must all share responsibility for managing crash forces to a level that does not result in death or serious injury 12
    • Principle 4 - Whole of system4. It will take a whole-of-system approach to implement the Safe System in New Zealand We must improve the performance of all parts of the system We aim for higher star ratings for Our roads and roadsides, vehicles, operators, and users. 13
    • Whole of system approach-linked upplanningSolutions to some issues lie in different partsof the system Median barriers reduce fatigue related crash injuries Alcohol interlocks will reduce alcohol related crash injuries Safer vehicles for young drivers reduce young driver crash injuries Self explaining roads reduce speed related crash injuries Whole of community responsibility for all safe travel this includes integrated Road Safety Education in schools 14
    • Summary A new approach to saving lives and serious injuries A more forgiving road system which acknowledges human fallibility recognises our physical vulnerability reduces the price paid for human error Responsibility for road safety is spread more widely than in the past We work together to strengthen the entire system A change in our road safety culture affects what we do, how we do it and how schools view Road Safety Education . 15
