International Safe Communities
Indicators that must be fulfilled
All International Safe Communities serve as models for other communities. According to investigations and research the injuries decrease by more than 25 % every year in Safe Communities.
The six indicators a community must fulfil to became an International Safe Community are:
INDICATOR 1: Governance - Sustainable injury prevention and safety promotion program lead by a cross-sector group integrated within the governing system of the community.
INDICATOR 2: Surveillance – Collection, analysis and dissemination of data about injuries and causes of injuries for problem identification, risk assessment and planning of prevention measures.
INDICATOR 3: Comprehensive – Projects covering all genders, ages, environments and situationsbased on best practice in injury prevention and safety promotion .
INDICATOR 4: Vulnerable Groups - Projects targeting vulnerable groups, high-risk groups and high-risk environments.
INDICATOR 5: Evaluation - Measures to assess the processes, effects and the continual improvement of the Safe Community program and its projects.
INDICATOR 6: Networking - On-going participation in national and international Safe Community networks.
