A Culture of Safety at the LibGuide Petting Zoo



Safety Tip: What steps do you take if a hippo is running towards you?    

Big ones!


Featured Guide:  Traffic Safety Culture -

This LibGuide comes from the Montana DOT Library.

The platform for this guide is provided through the National Transportation Library.


Guide Encounter:

Welcome to the Traffic Safety Culture LibGuide. There are some abbreviations associated with Traffic Safety Culture (TSC).  Be sure to click the glossary and terminology tab to investigate any terms you do not recognize.

What do you call an alligator who clicks on the glossary link to learn the right terminology?

An investigator!!


Safety Tip:  Steer clear of logs with eyes!

The TSC Pooled Fund tab gives a little background about Traffic Safety Culture, the main objectives of TPF-5(309), and a full explanation of the scope of work. Further down the home page you will see resources and more information about who to contact and how to participate in a pooled fund.


Safety Tip: Stay out of his pool. This is not the right pooled fund. He does not want to collaborate.

The Projects tab lists descriptions with titles that link back to individual projects including recently finished projects, like the Traffic Safety Culture Primer.

As we cautiously make our way into the Related Publications and Websites tab you will see the past Traffic Safety Culture publication collection that contains TSC publications from 2007 through 2018. Lower on the page there is a section for safety specific websites including peer exchange reports on safety. To the left of that you will also see a collection of general research databases.

The statistics tab, true to its name, lists Traffic Safety Culture indices and other statistics resources. Moving on, the Research Feed tab is a real-time feed of the latest research from TRID on all things safety.

Lastly, under Training and Videos you will find some useful media generated by Traffic Safety Culture projects. Happily, this page has been recently updated and includes recent Vision Zero presentations and the Traffic Safety Culture Primer Toolkit.

This guide should really shed some light on how the Traffic Safety Culture Pooled Fund works. With that, Bobbi and Cara will leave you with one more safety tip for the road. 


Safety Tip: Use properly working windshield vipers in case of a storm.
