Join us for this FREE webinar series taster – There's been a crash on our network - What do we do now?
When a crash has occurred on the public road network, what happens then? This session examines why incidents should be investigated before identifying and briefly comparing what typically happens now and good practice on what activities should happen next. This webinar serves as an overview of a supporting 6-part webinar and e-learning series which is highly commended and will be advertised very soon.
There are many experts in this series, led by ARRB's own Paul Hillier.

World Environment Day, 20th Anniversary – Beat Air Pollution
2 June 2020, 2pm AEST
Did you know that it will be World Environment Day's 20th Anniversary?
Join us for this FREE webinar – Beat Air Pollution
The global transport sector accounts for almost one-quarter of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions and this proportion is rising. Air pollution emissions from transport have been linked to nearly 400,000 premature deaths.
Almost half of all deaths by air pollution from transport are caused by diesel emissions, while those living closest to major traffic arteries are up to 12 percent more likely to be diagnosed with dementia. Vehicle emissions may also have impacts on the surrounding environment. Reducing vehicle emissions is an important intervention to improve air quality, especially in urban areas.
This talk will discuss what is being done globally in this space and examples of advancements in Australia in the last 20 years.
Our panel are ARRB leaders:
Margaret Brownjohn - Senior Professional, Sustainability and Resilience
Robert Kochhan - Senior Professional, Sustainability and Resilience
Join us on Tuesday 2 June at 2:00 PM AEST.
Registration for this FREE webinar is essential!
