NeuRA's Injury Prevention Research Centre, in association with Engineer's Australia's National Panel for Biomechanics of Impact Injury and the Sydney Chapter of the Australasian College of Road Safety, is hosting a vehicle safety seminar.
Historically the rear seat has been the safest position in a car, but new research suggests this is no longer the case. One in five passengers admitted to hospital following a crash will have been sitting in the rear seat and proportionally more fatalities occur among rear seat passengers than front seat passengers. Attention is shifting to rear seat occupant protection because significant gains in casualty reductions can be made with existing technology. The international vehicle industry is also investing in new technologies to better protect rear seat occupants. This seminar will cover the latest research, directions being taken by NCAP's and emerging rear seat safety technologies. Attendance to this seminar is free.
