This item is expired.

This webinar is led and co-sponsored by ITE and Vision Zero Network.

Webinar Description:
Thousands of people die on our roadways every year. The substantial and continued loss of life from transportation requires new approaches to traffic safety. Watch this ITE-hosted webinar exploring important new research that highlights how transportation professionals can shift their approach to roadway safety work by incorporating public health principles into transportation planning and engineering.

Join panelists - including Tiffany Smith from the Vision Zero Network, David Ederer from the CDC & Meghan Mitman of Fehr & Peers - as we discuss what this means in roadway safety work, including the need for cross-disciplinary efforts aligned with transportation decarbonization, equity goals & more.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize that transportation engineers effectively work as public health professionals
  • Describe the public health approach to transportation safety (i.e. focus causes of injury, prevention, and population level)
  • Describe how transportation can be a facilitator to health through physical activity
  • Explain how transportation professionals engage with the new Prioritizing Health Equity in Vision Zero work resource
  • Identify specific public health strategies/elements in roadway safety work
  • Identify actionable steps people can take (some small, some big) to bring in stronger health equity elements to their Vision Zero work
  • Learn about ITE’s new strategic plan and the focus on safety
  • Recognize the importance of institutionalization for the Safe System approach, and getting out of the safety silo by working across the ITE Councils
