Safe Systems: The Foundation of Vision Zero

In this informative one-hour webinar, learn about the principles of Safe Systems, which underlies Vision Zero. Hear from Jessica Truong, of the international Towards Zero Foundation based in London, and formerly with the Transport Accident Commission in Victoria, Australia.

Whatever stage your community is at, it’s important to understand that Vision Zero is not a slogan, not a tagline, not even just a program. It’s a fundamentally different approach to safe mobility because it’s based on the Safe Systems approach. What’s that? Why should you care? What will it mean to your work towards Vision Zero? Find out more by watching the recording below or download the presentation.

And join us for Part 2 of this webinar series on Thursday, May 14th to learn of more examples of Safe Systems in action around the world, as well as recommendations to move forward. Our goal is to help you move from vision to action when it comes to Vision Zero.

Please note we experienced some technical issues with the presentation, so the first 5 minutes of the video have no slides but the presentation resumes after that.
