Research indicates that as lighting levels decrease, people drive more quickly.
Increase Security-Safely/Perceived Security-Safety
Beck and teammates investigated how close cars are to bicycles being passed and their findings have implications for the design of not only roadways but also generally, for hallways within buildings, for example.
A number of both useful and important healthcare design-related studies were published during the last year.
Spaces where people feel--and are--safe are the places where people live their best lives. Cognitive scientists have identified ways that design can help people feel secure and reduce the likelihood and severity of criminal acts.
Perceptions affect outcomes, again
Important behavior-related implications
In EDs, co-worker visibility is desirable
Researchers continue to study the consequences of people traveling distracted through spaces because they’re using cell phones.
The Center for Health Design is making available, at the website noted below, a collection of tools that can be used to enhance safety at an assortment of healthcare facilities.
Pappas reports on how design can encourage safer driving.
