This book emerges from the interest in enriching the body of knowledge about accident characteristics, examining health outcomes and proposing measures to overcome societal and economic consequences of accidents. Contributions from different disciplines compose a collection that provides answers to prominent questions from various perspectives. The three parts of the book offer a comprehensive overview of the new state-of-the-practice knowledge about accident characteristics, risk factors, consequences and safety interventions. Combining knowledge from both road and occupational safety, and extending through various disciplines such as engineering, economics, medicine, and statistics, this collection stimulates readers in looking for enhanced solutions to safety problems that are a major threat to human life and cost millions to our society.
