An important aim of the EU-project CargoVibes was to derive exposure-response relationships for the expected annoyance due to vibration among residents living near freight railway lines. This was done based on existing survey data, as well as on some new survey data gathered within the project. To this end, a questionnaire was sent by mail to...

Companies, seen as social communities, are major health promotion contexts. However, health promotion in the work setting is often less successful than intended. An optimal adjustment to the organisational context is required. Knowledge of which organisation-specific factors are relevant to health promotion is scarce. A Delphi procedure is used...

De intensiteit op het spoor- en wegennet in ons land is al hoog en stijgt gestaag door. Dit heeft consequenties voor de veiligheid, niet in de laatste plaats van het vervoer van gevaarlijke stoffen over het spoor Extra maatregelen zijn nodig en dit is een zaak voor zowel de overheid als het bedrijfsleven. Het is dan ook vreemd dat kennis, kunde...

There is growing evidence that the psychosocial work environment may affect health (Marmot et al. 2006). Nevertheless, these factors are still not commonly taken into account in the studies examining the relations between indoor environmental quality and employee’s health and wellbeing. Several models of work stress have been developed in an...

In this paper I give my perspective on the main challenges for future safety research. Talking about the future, it is important to note that the concept “safety” always has a time dimension. It is regarded as ‘safe’ when there is the (justified) expectation that no accidents or incidents will happen in the foreseeable future. Safety and future...

Background To improve the information for and preparation of citizens at risk to hazardous material transport accidents, a first important step is to determine how different characteristics of hazardous material transport accidents will influence citizens' protective behaviour. However, quantitative studies investigating citizens' protective...

This research plan focuses on learning at work. Our aim is to gather empirical data on multiple factors that can affect learning for work, and to apply computational methods in order to understand the preconditions of effective learning. The design will systematically combine theory- and data-driven approaches to study (i) whether principles of...

De Wet vervoer gevaarlijke stoffen (Wvgs) reguleert het vervoer van gevaarlijke stoffen over de weg, het spoor, het water en in de lucht. Eén uitgangspunt van deze wet is dat het wegtransport zoveel mogelijk plaatsvindt op de hoofdinfrastructuur, zoals autosnel wegen. Echter, om laad- en loslocaties te kunnen bereiken moet er ook met gevaarlijke...

Working with multiple contractors in a shared workplace can introduce and increase safety risks due to complexity. The aim of this study was to explore how safety issues are recognized in a specific case and to identify whether clients and contractors perceive problems similarly. The safety issues are explored through a brief survey and a...

In het voorjaar van 2014 zijn hoge concentraties fijnstof waargenomen en meldden veel mensen last van hun luchtwegen. In België is van tevoren gewaarschuwd voor de hoge concentraties, in Nederland niet omdat de smogregeling in Nederland anders is dan in België. Over deze situatie is debat gevoerd in de Tweede Kamer. Bij het algemeen overleg van...

Safety culture is increasingly recognised as the third important determinant of safety, complementary to technology and safety organisation. There are no legal requirements with respect to safety culture, except for nuclear power plants. Safety culture is and remains therefore a responsibility of the major hazards industry itself and it was...
