Frank Gross, VHB, presiding
Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Transportation Safety Management (ANB10)


Evaluation is a key component of data-driven decision-making and should be standard business practice for transportation safety management programs. Through evaluation, we will know if our efforts are making a difference, or if we should pursue a different course of action. This session will showcase the results of several program evaluations from the U.S. and internationally. Using a hybrid approach, each speaker will have approximately 7 minutes to provide an overview of their research and results. This will be followed immediately by a poster session where you can interact with the speakers for more details about any aspect of their research.
