A very interesting seminar was held at the VicRoads Theatrette on Monday 27 February 2017.
The special guest speaker was Professor Mary Sheehan – Adjunct Professor, Faculty of Health, CARRS-Queensland. Mary has made a major contribution to public health through her research into the causes and prevention of road accidents in Australia. She has raised the level of debate in these areas through the development of community awareness programs.
Mary spoke about “Building the Safe System”. She discussed how the safe system developed and how it is interpreted slightly differently in different parts of the world. She gave the perspective from regional and remote areas, and emphasised the important role of the Australasian College of Road Safety (ACRS).
The seminar was introduced by ITEANZ President, Nick Szwed, and was closed by VicRoads CEO, John Merritt. VicRoads kindly hosted the session.
