  • The Subcommittee will focus on creation of knowledge rather than the application of knowledge.
  • The Subcommittee will monitor emerging ideas and approaches in safety analysis, which would include safety simulation, causal and structural modeling and surrogate measures of safety.
  • The Subcommittee will monitor applicable analytical methods from other disciplines, such as econometrics, epidemiology and biostatistics.
  • The Subcommittee will promote analysis and development of quantitative metrics for using emerging and non-traditional data sets not already used in safety, such as emergency medical transport and care, hospital records, and other public health databases.
  • The Subcommittee will promote quantitative analysis of human behavior and factors, education and enforcement approaches to safety improvement, in other words, approaches other than engineering as we have traditionally addressed.
