KEYNOTE SESSION: RURAL TRAFFIC SAFETY CULTURE OVERVIEW
This session focused on the rural context and identifying the behavioral, social and political factors in rural areas that are responsible for (1) the high traffic fatality and serious injury rate, (2) the political reluctance to introduce strong traffic safety policy, and (3) the community resistance to government mandated safety interventions. The format involved three presentations by relevant organizations with time for audience participation and questions. The goal of this session was to focus participants on the rural context and provide background for the later sessions dealing with potential solutions to the rural cultural and institutional barriers.

CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES OF TRAFFIC SAFETY DRIVER CULTURE
This interactive session presented different perspectives on driver safety culture and engaged participants in dialogue related to challenges and opportunities for positively improving traffic safety driver culture – especially in rural areas. Participants began to engage in the process of developing a common framework to measure and apply behavioral change strategies predicted on traffic safety culture.

CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES OF TRAFFIC SAFETY ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE
There are many organizations that impact traffic safety – law enforcement, local and state road departments, tribal entities and federal agencies. From the top down, or from the bottom up, how can safety culture move through an organization? This session built upon ongoing local, state, tribal and/or national initiatives to discuss how to achieve and accelerate organizationally a change in traffic safety culture.

THE SCIENCE OF THE POSITIVE – FRAMEWORK FOR IMPROVING HEALTH AND SAFETY CULTURES
The Science of the Positive (SotP) is a theory of transformation for individual and collective cultures. Through decades of research and application, the SotP approach has evolved to become an holistic science-to-action framework for posing research questions and evaluating the effectiveness of intervention strategies. While numerous definitions of “safety cultures” abound, they all seem to operate from a common deficit-based perspective that essentially views “culture as a problem to be solved.” The most pressing need in safety culture research is to correct this misperception and establish a common positive framework for action. The Science of the Positive identifies three core domains that direct intermediate variables toward sustained cultural transformation of health and safety outcomes.

2009 Summit Proceedings

We completed a successful National Rural Summit on Traffic Safety Culture June 22, 2009 in Big Sky, Montana! Over 60 speakers, panelists, and attendees met to discuss the challenges of defining and improving safety culture. Presentations by leading national and international experts and advocates from different disciplines covered specific issues related to the definition, quantification, analysis, evolution and modification of culture. With the exception of the keynotes, each presentation was followed by a focused discussion between a panel of experts and the presenter in a public forum.

The following presentations have been made available courtesy of the speakers and are the sole property of the originator (speaker/author). As such, they should not be used, modified, etc. without the originators express permission.
