Rail level crossings continue to represent a significant safety concern, both in Australia and worldwide. This two day conference will share findings and practical implications from a recently completed four year program of human factors research funded by the Australian Research Council and the key Victorian road and rail agencies. The research conducted has advanced the knowledge base on the factors influencing behaviour at rail level crossings and has developed and evaluated novel rail level crossing designs that will better prevent collisions.
The conference will include presentations highlighting the key findings from the research along with practical workshops designed to facilitate translation of the research outputs into industry practice. This includes workshops on human factors analysis and design methods, accident analysis methods, and how the approaches used in the research can be applied to evaluate new rail level crossing technologies as they are proposed.
The conference will be of interest to those across the rail and road industries with responsibilities for minimising risk at rail level crossings, as well as those with more general interests in human factors approaches to designing safer transport systems.
Please note this is a free event.
