Course objectives

  • The objectives are to give the participants up-to-date information on accidents and their prevention and on success factors in safety promotion.
  • Good research practices will be explored. The lecturers are selected so that they represent the best researchers in the area of safety. They also represent the different disciplinary angles in safety. The participants are provided an opportunity to exchange opinions with these senior people, and also to spend leisure time with them. The lecturers are also able to give advice regarding scientific publishing.
  • An important goal of the course is to help participants to network. Young people in particular benefit from the contacts they can create during the course. The previous courses have created contacts for life that have led to increased Nordic and international cooperation.

Subject background

The series of Safety Research and Safety Promotion courses started in the early nineties as there were young people entering the field of safety research who were working towards a PhD degree. The course is planned for people who either aim to become researchers or who use research results in their work. The participants are a multidisciplinary group, e.g. engineers, psychologists, social scientists, physiologists, medical doctors, etc.

This international course focuses on new approaches in safety research and practice, and covers a wide variety of occupational sectors, as well as home, leisure and traffic accidents. The participants’ different disciplinary and professional backgrounds have been a clear advantage for the course, bringing a mixture of researchers and professionals.
