Safety culture & automated vehicles
The aim is to explore existing practice and knowledge of safety culture, and to identify methods to support safe introduction of automation. The project will investigate and analyze new risks with automation and produce recommendations for companies’ excellency in safety culture with automated vehicles and machines. Data will be collected through documents, observations, surveys and interviews to develop methods and recommendations on how to handle safety culture in organizations. A process model will be developed and evaluated in two case studies (buses and forklifts) where automated vehicles and machines are being designed, tested and introduced. The process model will support and integrate safety culture when introducing highly automated vehicles and machines. A survey to measure safety culture in design and tests of new automated vehicles and machines will also be produced. Environmental and gender equality culture will be addressed in relation to safety culture. The study was finances by Vinnova, FFI.
