Background. Organisations spend a considerable amount of time and effort on diagnosing and analysing risks within their organisation. In the area of occupational and process safety, a myriad of employee survey instruments is available. Many studies show that operational processes play an important role in an organisations overall safety. Yet, so...

Veel bedrijven in met name de petrochemische industrie zijn er de afgelopen jaren in geslaagd het aantal ongevallen sterk terug te dringen. Een van de middelen die is gebruikt om deze verbetering te bewerkstelligen, is de zogenaamde Kwantitatieve Risico Analyse (QRA). Een QRA is een instrument om de risico's voor een bepaalde activiteit te...

BACKGROUND: Epidemiological evidence on the association between ambient air pollution and breast cancer risk is inconsistent. OBJECTIVE: We examined the association between long-term exposure to ambient air pollution and incidence of postmenopausal breast cancer in European women. METHODS: In 15 cohorts from nine European countries, individual...

In the Netherlands, the well-developed multi-mode accessible Rhein/Meuse/Scheldt delta region continues to flourish as the gateway to Europe. At the same time, severe congestion is threatening the quality of life. Adding to the challenges is a shortage of qualified truck drivers and the fact that no significant extensions to the physical road...

Background: Many older persons prefer to live independent as long as possible. A living environment facilitating physical activity may be important for this purpose, but the design of ‘activity-friendly’ living environments for older persons remains less clear. In a study in Spijkenisse (the Netherlands), characteristics of the living...

With the aim to identify recent research achievements, current trends in research, remaining gaps of knowledge and priority areas of future research in the field of non-auditory health effects of noise, recent research progress was reviewed. A search was performed in PubMed (search terms “noise AND health”), for peer reviewed journal articles,...

There is an urgent drive to implement Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) on a commercial and global scale. This needs to be done in a demonstrably safe and responsible manner that gains widespread acceptance of stakeholders, most notably regulators and the public. If inhaled in sufficiently high concentrations, CO2 can have toxicological effects...

Het Lint is een ruim 8km lang beweeglint in het Máximapark in Utrecht dat intensief wordt gebruikt om te wandelen, fietsen, skaten, hardlopen. Een groot succes dus, maar wat verklaart dit succes? Wat zijn de randvoorwaarden en ontwerpprincipes die misschien ook elders voor succesvolle toepassingen kunnen zorgen? Deze vraag stelde de gemeente...

This paper describes a study which gives insight into the size of improvement that is possible with individual in-car routing advice based on the actual traffic situation derived from floating car data (FCD). It also gives an idea about the required penetration rate of floating car data needed to achieve a certain degree of improvement. The...

Natural environments (NE) are promoted as places that support physical activity (PA), but evidence on PA distribution across various types and sizes of NE is lacking. Accelerometers and GPS-devices measured PA of Dutch general population adults aged 45–65 years (N=279). Five NE types were distinguished: ‘parks’, ‘recreational area’, ...

In Nederland vinden we het van groot belang dat kinderen de kans krijgen om zich op gezonde wijze te ontwikkelen. Een belangrijk aspect van een gezonde ontwikkeling is dat kinderen dagelijks voldoende bewegen. Te veel kinderen voldoen helaas niet aan de beweegnorm van dagelijks een uur lichamelijke activiteit. Daarom is het van belang om...

Conventional travel time reliability assessment has evolved from road segments to the route level. However, a connection between origin and destination usually consists of multiple routes, thereby providing the option to choose. Having alternatives can compensate for the deterioration of a single route; therefore, this study assesses the...

Major and minor disturbances can have a considerable impact on the performance of road networks. In this respect, resilience is con-sidered as the ability of a road section to resist and to recover from disturbances in traffic flow. In this contribution, an indicator is pre-sented, the Link Performance Index for Resilience (LPIR), which eval...

Noise is defined as 'unwanted sound.' Aircraft noise is one, if not the most detrimental environmental effect of aviation. It can cause community annoyance, disrupt sleep, adversely affect academic performance of children, and could increase the risk for cardiovascular disease of people living in the vicinity of airports. In some airports, noise...
