Creating Safer Systems and Healthier Communities: Resource Hub

Part of the work of CSCRS is to share and develop a stronger understanding of Safe Systems principles and systems science in order to showcase how these principles can be applied in a variety of real-world scenarios and integrated into injury prevention programs such as Vision Zero. So we created this resource page intended to serve as a hub for research-to-practice innovation.
