Publication date: November 2018Source: International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, Volume 68Author(s): Weizhong Wang, Xinwang Liu, Yong Qin, Jinjin Huang, Yufan LiuAbstractThe Rasmussen's AcciMap approach is an important system thinking method widely used to guide accident analysis and assess potential contributory factors. However, the AcciMap approach cannot quantify interaction relationships among contributory factors and the hierarchical representation of these factors, and it also cannot identify the dominant contributory factors in potential systemic accident. These limitations influence applications of the AcciM...

This study aimed to identify and explore the major mechanisms that influence young drivers’ compliance with the Queensland, Australia Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) (also known as graduated licensing or graduated driver licensing systems) restrictions. Due to the limited research focus on compliance with GDL restrictions, a qualitative approach was utilised. The study consisted of 11 focus groups (N = 60) of young Queensland drivers aged between 17 and 25 years (Mage = 20.50 years, SD = 2.69). Results were analysed using an inductive thematic analysis. Participants had low perceptions of enforcement...

Publication date: Available online 18 September 2018Source: Journal of Transport &HealthAuthor(s): Hebba Haddad, Audrey de NazelleAbstractExposure to air pollution is affected by human behaviour, and has consequences for individual and collective health. One way to lessen the health effects of air pollution is to change personal travel behaviour with the help of new information, communication and sensing technologies. Our social research tracked the experiences of participants, air quality and technology enthusiasts, based in London who financially contributed to participate in an early-stage technical trial of a new a...

In this study, we examine how the frequency of SNS use is associated with active travel (i.e., walking and cycling) and body mass index (BMI) in the Glasgow and Clyde Valley Planning area, Scotland. We employ both a self-reported measure of active travel from a travel diary (N = 1684) and an objective measure of average walking hours from Global Positioning System (GPS) data (N = 282) collected in 2015. These are analysed with statistical models (i.e., binomial logistic regression, multinomial logistic regression and linear regression models). We find that there is no significant association between the frequency o...

WetzelsMutations in the NPHS2 gene, which encodes the podocyte slit diaphragm protein podocin, cause autosomal recessive steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man [OMIM] #600995). Basic research and clinical studies have provided important insights about genotype-phenotype correlations. This knowledge allows personalized genetic (risk) counseling and should lead to changes in the advice given to patient...

We outline our mapping methods and discuss strengths and challenges encountered during workshops aimed at understandings how the system of housing-related supports function. Strengths were that workshops provided a forum for social participation and engagement. In addition, mapping is a research tool that enables local knowledge of service functioning and service gaps to be accessed and exchanged. Challenges include ensuring diverse representat...
