Creating Safer Systems and Healthier Communities: Resource HubPhoto of a wagon wheel hub.

A big part of our work is sharing and developing a stronger understanding of the principles of the Safe System approach and systems science in order to showcase how these principles can be applied in 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. Our Creating Safer Systems and Healthier Communities: Resource Hub includes tools and applications related to strengthening Safe Systems, Vision Zero, and much more.
