SAFETY & HEALTH COMMITTEE
The primary responsibilities of this committee are updating regional technical reports on Safety and Health. This committee will review and update regional data and will also amend the technical reports through discussions regarding:
Updating Safety & Health Data Reports
Strategies for Reducing Crashes in our Region
Safety concerning all modes of transportation
Environment Air Quality including Ozone levels
Assisting in the creation of Educational Awareness Tools
Exploring new initiatives such as Vision-Zero Goals
HEALTH AND TRANSPORTATION
Bridging health and transportation is important to WAMPO in aiding and improving community health in our region. Since the passage of the 1970 National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the links between our urban and rural environments and public health have become increasingly evident.
The Safety & Health Committee transitioned to ICT Safe: A Regional Transportation Coalition, which held its first meeting in November 2023.
